LANCASTER, Pa. – A trio of Ursinus College women's soccer players received honorable mention on the All-Centennial Conference team released Thursday by the league office.
A senior forward, Groff ends her career with her first all-conference honor after posting team highs of six goals and 13 points. The co-captain started all 17 games and scored twice in two of them, including the season opener at Keystone and again against Penn State Brandywine. Three of Groff's goals were game-winners, and she assisted on freshman Kelly Gardus' go-ahead strike in a 1-0 victory over Washington College on October 24.
Groff finished her career ranked seventh in program history in goals (16) and ninth in points (39).
Doherty received All-CC honorable mention for the second year in a row. Cementing her status as one of the league's top goaltenders, Doherty tops the CC with 86 saves while placing third in save percentage (.835) and seventh in goals-against average (1.04). She notched six solo shutouts to run her career total to eight. Doherty had a pair of games with double-digit saves and even posted an assist in the season finale against Bryn Mawr.
O'Malley caps her first collegiate season by becoming only the third freshman in school history – and the first since Jess Porcelan in 2008 – to earn all-conference laurels. The rookie anchored a defense that tallied seven clean sheets and allowed only 18 goals in 17 games. O'Malley started every contest and notched her first career point on an assist in a 1-0 victory over Alvernia on September 26.
Additionally, sophomore midfielder Angela Gervasi was named to the All-Sportsmanship Team. Gervasi started 16 games and was second on the team with four goals, including one against No. 4 Johns Hopkins and two more in the finale against Bryn Mawr.
