Posey Earns NFHCA First Team All-Region Honors

YORK, Pa. – York College field hockey sophomore Ali Posey (Airville, Pa. / Red Lion) has been named to the 2015 Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association First Team All-South Region as announced by the NFHCA on Monday.

Posey is now a two-time NFHCA All-South Region selection as she earned Second Team honors last year. She is the 15th overall selection in program history and just the second First Team selection (Jamie Torkar-Swartz, 1998).

Posey recorded a team-high 41 points on 18 goals and five assists. She finished with the fourth-highest goal total and the fifth-highest point total among the 32 All-South Region selections.

Posey went 4-for-5 in penalty strokes while she notched a pair of game-winning goals. The four converted strokes are a new single-season school record. Posey had a pair of three-goal games early in the year as she scored a goal in 12 of her 19 games and had at least a point in 13 contests. Her 18 goals is tied for second on the program's single-season list while her 41 points are tied for third.

Posey has notched 69 points in her 39 career games with 30 goals and nine assists. She has six game-winning goals and is 5-for-6 in penalty strokes for her career. She ranks seventh in career-goals and sits 23 behind York's all-time leader, April McFarland. Her 69 points leave her just outside the program's career top-ten.

Posey has also been a two-time All-Capital Athletic Conference selection and the 2014 CAC Rookie of the Year.
