ANNVIlLLE, Pa. - Hood College's Kara Phoubandith was named All-Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth Honorable Mention in voting by the conference's coaches. 

Phoubandith returned from an injury that ended her first season with one of the most prolific scoring seasons in school history. She became just the third player in school history to score 40 goals in a single season. She led the team in both goals (40) and points (48). She had seven goals and nine points in a win over Notre Dame (Md.). She finished MAC Commonwealth play strong, with four multi-goal games over the final five contest, including a four-goal performance against Albright and a hat trick against Alvernia. In the only game she did not score multiple goals during the stretch, she dished out a pair of assists. 

It is Phoubandith's first career all-conference honor.
