Assistant Professor of Communication Emily Deering Crosby was named to the Allegheny College Athletic Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019. Crosby, who graduated in 2006, is the Allegheny women’s lacrosse all-time leader in both points (144) and goals (123).

According to the release, “The only player in program history to be named all-region four times, Crosby was a three-time, first-team all-region selection (2003, ’04 and ’06), and a 2005 second-team honoree. Following a senior campaign in which she led the Gators to a then-school record nine wins and appearance in the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) championship, Crosby earned the 2006 NCAC Defensive Player of the Year award after ranking in the top four in the conference in draw controls (2.25 per game), ground balls (3.81 per game) and cause turnovers (3.19 per game). She remains one of just two lacrosse players in school history to be a four-time, first-team All-NCAC selection.”
