Coming off her junior season when she scored a team-leading nine goals including four game-winners, East Setauket’s Katie O’Connor, a senior at Duquesne University, has been named to the Atlantic-10 Preseason All-Conference Team.
Named an A-10 First-Team All-Conference in 2017, the Ward Melville High School graduate has been a key part of the Dukes offense during her first three years as a member of the school’s women’s soccer team. She led the team in scoring with 10 goals during her freshman year and six goals as a sophomore.
During her freshman season, her 26 total points were the second highest single-season total in program history. That same here she was also named Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team and Atlantic 10 All-Tournament Team.
