PITTSBURGH, PA — The 2011 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference All-Conference soccer teams were released and, for the fourth year in a row, Alyssa Hulbert has been recognized as one of the top players in the women’s soccer league. Hulbert caps her final season off with a repeat First Team All-Conference selection in both her junior and senior years after spending a season on the Second Team as well as the Honorable Mention squad her first two terms.
The Tonawanda, NY native led the Hawks in scoring earning 26 points off a combination of 11 goals and 4 assists. Hulbert was a constant threat to the opposing team’s defense finishing the year with 64 shots (36 on goal). The midfielder ranked 4th in goals, 3rd in goals per game, and 6th in points once all the dust settled after the AMCC play-offs.
Hulbert nailed the game winning PK in a 2-1 overtime win against Thiel (9/22) then followed that up with another game-decider against Pitt-Greensburg to open AMCC play (9/24). With two goals and an assist against Chatham University (9/20), Hulbert finished that week with 11 points and was named as the AMCC Offensive Player of the Week on September 26.
She completed her senior year with two or more goals on three different occasions and scored her only hat-trick in 2011 in the team’s lopsided victory over Penn State Beaver.
