WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross field hockey senior captain Alanna Sikorski (Glen Gardner, N.J.) and freshman Lindsay MacPhail (Goffstown, N.H.) have been named to the 2010 first and second team All-Patriot League squads respectively, announced by the league. Both players collect the honor for the first time.

Sikorski has played in 72 games over her Holy Cross career. She completes her senior season with six defensive saves, which ranks first amongst Patriot League individuals.

MacPhail, who was named to the second team, appeared in all 17 games for the Crusaders this season, starting 16. She tallied two assists on the season while making 17 shots total.
