Doherty, Smith Receive Big Ten Honors For Women’s Lacrosse

Recently crowned the inaugural Big Ten Tournament champions, women’s lacrosse was honored twice on Monday afternoon with all-conference recognition. Big Ten coaches unanimously selected head coach Missy Doherty and goalie Emi Smith as Big Ten Coach and Goaltender of the Year, respectively.

In her fifth season as Penn State’s head coach, Doherty has led the team to its fourth consecutive NCAA tournament. She is the first of nine coaches in program history to win a conference coach of the year honor. This is Doherty’s second coach of the year selection after she was named Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year in 2004 while at Towson.

Smith, a junior goalie hailing from Denver, Colorado, has started in net for the Lions since her freshman year. She started 17 of this season’s 18 games, proving a crucial instrument in Penn State’s 14-4 record. Smith ranked second in the Big Ten in save percentage with .458 and GAA with 9.18.

Penn State will take on Johns Hopkins in the first round of the NCAA tournament at Virginia on Friday at 4 p.m.
