NEWTON, MA (11/07/2018)-- Six members of the Lasell College field hockey team, including Cailin Flannery of Medford, NJ, were recognized Tuesday with selection to the 2018 All-Great Northeast Athletic Conference Team, as voted by the GNAC's head coaches.
Flannery was named to the All-GNAC First Team. Flannery has earned GNAC post-season honors the last four years.
Flannery and teammate Samantha Taylor provided Lasell with an outstanding 1-2 punch on offense, helping the Lasers rank 11th nationally among 165 schools in the NCAA Division III with 3.9 goals per game. Lasell also ranked 23rd nationally in assists per game and 13th in points per contest. A 5-8 forward, Flannery led the GNAC in scoring with school records of 21 goals and 51 points and ranked fifth with nine assists. She ranked 26th nationally in NCAA Division III with 1.00 goals per game and 21st with 2.43 points per game. She scored at least two goals in a game six times, including a hat trick in a win at Clark University. Her 21 goals broke the school mark of 20, set by Caitlyn Walker back in 2008, and her 51 points topped the previous program record of 45 points that she established in 2015 and Taylor equaled last year. Flannery, who was the GNAC Rookie of the Year in 2015 and All-Conference Second Team in 2016 before First Team honors the past two years, wraps up her career as Lasell's all-time leading scorer with 66 goals, 45 assists and 177 points, all of which are program records.
