The team co-captain ranked fifth in the America East in goals per game (2.5) and ninth in points per game (3.12), and she scored at least two points in 10 straight games to end the season. She finished her career with 100 goals, 123 points, 99 ground balls and 124 draw controls and was named UMBC’s Outstanding Female Senior Athlete at the athletic department’s varsity awards banquet last month.
Dorr also excelled in the classroom, as she was a unanimous selection to the America East All-Academic squad and earned CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District Second Team nods, as well.
Dorr is the Retrievers’ third All-Region honoree in the last four years, joining former teammates Kelly Fiorani (2006) and Ali Levendusky (2008). Dorr is also the fourth Retriever to be chosen for the North-South game in that period, joining Fiorani, Levendusky and Julie Libertini (2006).
