Alissa Moser Gorman, a scholastic All-American in 1998, was inducted into the North Penn Alumni Athletic Association’s Hall of Fame Saturday in a special ceremony at the North Penn High School Auditorium.
Moser Gorman also starred and coached at Notre Dame. At North Penn, Gorman also played field hockey and was a member of the swimming team.
A two-time all-BIG EAST selection at midfield/attack (2001, 2002) during her playing career at Notre Dame, Moser Gorman was a four-year starter and two-time captain for the Irish in 2001 and 2002.
A 2002 graduate with a degree in government and history, Moser worked in the private sector following graduation for the law firm of Vedder, Price, Kaufman & Kammholz, P.C., before deciding to get into collegiate coaching.
She served as an assistant coach at Notre Dame for three years, but left the post to begin law school this year.
During her Notre Dame career, Moser Gorman helped the Irish compile a 37-26 record and be selected to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 2002. There, they defeated Ohio State in the opening round before falling to eventual national champion Princeton in the quarterfinals.
A native of North Wales, Moser started 62 games in her college career, ranking seventh on the all-time goals list with 67 and sixth on the career points list with 85. One of the top players in the country on the draw, Moser led Notre Dame in draw controls for three straight seasons and is the program’s all-time leader with 126. She set the single-season record with 40 in 2001.
A three-year selection to the United States Women’s Lacrosse Association’s Midwest team (1999-2001), Moser turned in her best season with the Irish as a senior when she scored a career-best 29 goals with six assists for 35 points. She added a career-high 41 groundballs and had 34 draw controls in helping lead the Irish to their best season ever with a 13-5 record.
Moser Gorman was one of 12 individuals and two teams inducted into the Hall of Fame.
