All-CC field hockey Four members of the Muhlenberg field hockey team were selected to the All-Centennial Conference team.

Senior Kayleigh Thies and sophomore Claudia Theriault earned first-team honors, while senior Lauren Jordan made the second team and senior Sierra Lenker received honorable mention.

Thies (above left) was a unanimous first-team selection for the second year in a row. She also made the second team as a sophomore and is the fifth Mule to earn All-CC honors at least three times. Thies is only the second Muhlenberg player to make the first team twice, and the first to do it in back-to-back years.

Thies leads the Mules with 28 points on 10 goals and eight assists. In the CC, she is tied for third in assists and eighth in points. Her 20 points in CC games tied for fifth in the league. The 2013 third-team All-American ranks second in program history with 101 career points and holds the school record for career assists (27).

Theriault (above second from left) moved up to the first team after earning second-team honors as a freshman. She anchors a Muhlenberg defense that has allowed more than two goals only once in 17 games. Theriault leads the Mules and is tied for third in the CC with four defensive saves.

Jordan (above second from right) had a breakout season in 2014, tying for the team lead with 10 goals and scoring 26 points – more than double her career total of 12 entering the year. She scored one of the team’s biggest goals, an overtime winner at Washington, and recorded a hat trick against Swarthmore.

Lenker (above right) has started every game in goal and ranks third in the CC with a 1.30 goals-against average. The two-year starter is 11th in team history with 174 career saves.

The Mules (12-5) finished in third place in the CC and are the second seed in the ECAC Mid-Atlantic Tournament. They will host Stevenson on Wednesday night.
