Patriot League Release

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — American University women's soccer senior defender/midfielder Kira Flaherty earned All-Patriot League Third Team honors, as announced by the league office on Monday.

Voting for the Patriot League All-League teams and major awards was conducted by League head coaches, who could not vote for their own student-athletes or themselves.

Flaherty finished the season with a team-best two goals and four points. She scored both of her goals in an eight-minute span against Loyola Maryland on Oct. 18.

She was a co-captain this season and completed her career at American with three goals in 72 games. Flaherty is a three-time PL Academic Honor Roll member and was part of the 2016 All-PL Academic Team.

American finished its season 2-15 with a 1-8 mark in Patriot League play. The Eagles are set to return all but three players —Kira Flaherty, Kaylee Hillard and Carly Perry — to graduation in the Spring.
