The accolades just keep on coming for standout Mallory Lefkowitz and a pair of top field hockey players from the Wyoming Valley Conference.

Lefkowitz, the top scorer for PIAA Class 2A champion Wyoming Seminary, was named a first-team high school All-American by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association on Monday.

Lefkowitz, who scored 24 goals and added 11 assists for 59 points this season, tied for second in the WVC in all three statistical categories. Her 24 goals, a career best, gave her double figures in goal scoring for a third consecutive season.

The senior had three hat tricks in the first five games of the season and added a four-goal game late in the regular season. She posted two goals in the state quarterfinals against Upper Perkiomen, including the overtime winner.

Lefkowitz added a three-assist game in the Blue Knights’ district playoff opener against Nanticoke.

Joining Lefkowitz on the All-Americans list is teammate Morgan Malone and Crestwood midfielder Morgan Kile. Both seniors were third-team selections.

Malone was second on the Sem state champions with 15 goals and eight assists. Her 38 points were eighth in the WVC this season. She had eight goals and two assists in seven postseason games.

Kile tied for seventh in the WVC with nine assists and had four goals for the Comets. Her 17 points this season and strong two-way play helped Crestwood forge a 39-game winning streak dating back to its 2012 state championship.


Slavoski named All-State

Holy Redeemer senior Nicole Slavoski was named to the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association Class 2A All-State team.

The 6-foot outside hitter for the Royals led her team to their seventh consecutive District 2 championship and into the PIAA quarterfinals.

Slavoskiled the Wyoming Valley Conference in kills with 230, and was second on the Royals in service points with 162. She also led her team in aces.
