Centennial Conference | Silver Anniversary Lacrosse Teams

(Carlisle, Pa.) - The Centennial Conference is celebrating 25 years as one of the elite small college athletic conferences in the country with the announcement of its Silver Anniversary teams, highlighting the best of the best over our first quarter-century. 

For inclusion on a Silver Anniversary team, a student must have a degree from one of the Conference institutions and met one of the following qualifications: 

  • 3-time or 4-time First-team All-Centennial performer
  • 2-time Centennial Conference Player of the Year
  • 1st team All-America AND 2-time First-team All-Centennial performer
  • 2-time All-America (1st, 2nd or 3rd team)

Today, we highlight lacrosse and feature two women and four men who represent the Red Devils on the Silver Anniversary squads. The women's program reached new heights in 2006, advancing to the NCAA Tournament and winning its opening round game. Two-time All-American Ana Sokol '09 played a key role that season and throughout her career. Moira Mahoney '16 enjoyed an outstanding career as well, earning All-America honors 2016. She was a three-time All-Region and three-time First-team All-Conference selection as a four-year starter for the Red Devils.

The men's team captured three straight Centennial Conference Championships in 2011, 2012 and 2013. They hoisted the trophy again this past spring, advancing to the 'Elite Eight' of the NCAA Tournament. The Red Devils had a truly record-breaking year in 2013, posting an 18-1 record, making another great run in the NCAA playoffs. Taking over the program in 2001, Head Coach Dave Webster '88 had produced 34 All-Americans and 10 Scholar All-Americans. He was named the CC Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2011.
