LANCASTER, Pa. – Four members of the McDaniel College women’s lacrosse team have been named to the 2009 All-Centennial Conference (CC) team on Thursday.
Junior Brittany Baer (Westminster, Md./Westminster) and senior Michelle Fluty (Huntingtown, Md./Calvert) earned first-team honors while senior Lindsey McDonald (Germantown, Md./Damascus) and junior Leanne Hollinger (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) earned honorable mention nods.
Baer, an attacker, earned her second straight All-CC nod after a second-team selection in 2008. In 2009, she led the team and CC with a program-record 76 goals. Her team-leading 88 points ranked second on the all-time single-season list, two shy of Sandi Stevens’ 1987 record (90). She controlled 60 draws, which is also a program record, in addition to causing 25 turnovers and picking up 35 ground balls.
Fluty, a defender, was a key member of the defense, causing 13 turnovers and picking up 27 ground balls. She also contributed one goal to the offense in a 15-1 win over Bryn Mawr.
McDonald, an attacker, paced the team with a program-record 41 assists. She also tallied 19 goals to finish second on the team with 60 points while adding 20 ground balls and eight caused turnovers.
Hollinger, a goalkeeper, led the CC with 169 saves and ranked second with a save percentage of .494. She finished her first full season as the starting goalkeeper with an 11.90 goals-against average.
The Green Terror (9-8, 5-4 CC) finished its season with a 19-11 loss at Dickinson in the CC first-round game.
