From Press Release

After recording a program-record seven Patriot League wins this season, four members of the Lehigh women’s lacrosse team have earned All-League recognition, as announced on Monday. Senior Kierstyn Voiro (Moorestown) and sophomore Sondra Dickey (Conestoga) garnered first-team laurels while senior Kayleen Kelly and junior Courtney Henig (Notre Dame-NJ) were named to the second team.

This marks the third straight season Lehigh has had four All-Patriot League honorees. Voiro was named to the first team for a second consecutive season. A leader of the Mountain Hawks’ defense, she is third on the team in caused turnovers (19) while her 32 groundballs are fifth on the squad and 10 draw controls are tied for fourth. Voiro has recorded multiple groundballs in 11-of-17 games this season. The co-captain has three or more caused turnovers on three separate occasions, including three groundballs and four caused turnovers on Senior Day vs. Bucknell. Voiro is part of a defense that’s allowed single-digit goals on eight occasions, allowing just 37 goals over the final five games of the season (7.4/game).

Dickey garnered All-League for the first time in her career, as one of four midfielders named to the 2018 first team. The Paoli, Pa. native has been named the league’s Midfielder of the Week four times this season, tied for the most in the league, along with Jenna Collins of Navy. One of two Mountain Hawks to break the previous school record for draw controls in a season, Dickey is second on the team in draw controls (70), while she’s first in goals (49) and points (71) and second in assists (22). Dickey has recorded multiple goals in 14-of-17 games this season with 12 hat tricks after recording two as a freshman. Among Dickey’s highlight games was a career-high eight points and seven draw controls at Holy Cross, to go with four groundballs and four caused turnovers. At Columbia, she scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds remaining to give the Mountain Hawks a thrilling 13-12 victory.

In the midst of an impressive senior season, Kelly earned her first-career All-Patriot League honor. Kelly has broken three Lehigh draw control records this season – draws in a game (10 vs. Bucknell), season (currently 77) and career (160). The previous school season was 47 by Carli Sukonik in 2012. Kelly also leads the Mountain Hawks in groundballs (45) and is second in caused turnovers (21). She has recorded multiple groundballs in all but two games this season while tallying multiple caused turnovers in 15-of-17 games as well. At Army West Point, Kelly recorded six groundballs, five draw controls and four caused turnovers. She also posted three groundballs, four caused turnovers and a school-record 10 draw controls vs. Bucknell in a Senior Day to remember. Kelly has consistently covered the opponent’s top scoring option and has thrived as an anchor of a defense that is fourth in the league, allowing 10.57 goals per contest.

Henig was also named All-League for the first time, earning a spot on the second team despite missing the final five games of the season due to injury. Despite playing just 12 games, she still leads the Mountain Hawks in assists (24) and is second in points (43), averaging 3.6 points and 2.0 assists per game. Henig was named Patriot League Attacker of the Week on Feb. 19 after seven points (three goals, four assists) vs. No. 12 Penn State. She became the first player to post seven or more points vs. the Nittany Lions in the regular season in almost a year (Miranda Stinson of Colorado on Mar. 12, 2017). Henig went on to post multiple points in all but two games, also recording six vs. No. 14 Princeton and at Wagner, and five at Columbia.

Lehigh stands as the No. 3 seed in the Patriot League Tournament and will host sixth-seeded Holy Cross on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Tickets for Tuesday night’s game are just $5 for the general public, $3 for college students, Lehigh faculty/staff, seniors (65+) and children (2-18). The first 50 Lehigh students at the gate Tuesday are admitted FREE. To purchase tickets in advance, please click here.
