AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union sophomore attack Katherine Doraty (Medina/Medina) was named Ohio Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year to headline the 2014 All-OAC Teams selected by the conference's head coaches.

She is joined on the All-OAC First Team by sophomores in midfielder Taylor Pensyl (Kent/Kent Roosevelt) and defender Kolbie Haines (Hudson/Hudson). 

Pensyl is among conference leaders with a team-best 57 draw controls.  She is third on the team with 39 goals and scored 47 points along with 23 caused turnovers.

Haines had a team-high 41 ground balls and 28 caused turnovers to help lead a defense that entered this week as the No. 6 ranked scoring defense in the nation.

Four other Raiders have been selected All-OAC honorable mention in sophomores Susie Kraus (Sewickley, Pa./Quaker Valley), Kelsey Shewbridge (Medina/Medina), Casey McHenry (Hudson/Hudson) and freshman Emily Sendker (Lancaster, N.Y./Lancaster Central).
