Penn field hockey senior Liz Lorelli was recently selected by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) to participate in the annual Division I North/South Senior All-Star Game on Nov. 20 at Wake Forest.
The Greenwich, Conn. native is the leading scorer for the Red and Blue in 2004 and one of the top scorers in the Ivy League. Lorelli has scored seven goals this season, including five game-winners, and added five helpers for 19 points thus far.
“I am very excited for Liz this is a great opportunity for her to play with some of the best players in the nation,” Head Coach Val Cloud said. “It will be a fitting end to an outstanding career here at Penn.”
The senior forward stands second all-time in goals (41) and points (94) in the Penn program. She needs only three goals to tie the all-time goals record and four points to tie the all-time points record. Lorelli banged out 20 goals, three assists and 43 points in 18 games in 2003 and broke two single-season program records - goals in a season and points in a season. The mechanical engineering and applied mechanics major ranked 11th in the nation in goals scored, fifth in goals per game (1.111), ninth in points per game (2.389) and 17th in points in 2003.
Lorelli and the Quakers sport an 11-4 overall record and are 4-1 in the Ivy League. Penn returns to action on Oct. 31 for an Ancient Eight contest against Brown. With two games remaining in the season, Penn, defending Ivy Champion Princeton and Harvard all have one loss in conference action and are vying for the Ivy title.
