herself some high goals for the Fall 2010 season and she managed to
achieve all but one," said Quinnipiac Head Coach Dave Clarke. "That
was testimony to the hard work she put in during the spring and
summer. She played a captain's role and led by example on and off
the field. Her selection to the senior bowl is well deserved and
will serve as a motivator for next year's senior class."
Over the past four years, McLoughlin proved to be a consistent and versatile player for the Bobcats. In her senior season, she started in every game for the Bobcats, collecting eight points, three goals and two assists. Overall, McLoughlin recorded 30 points, 12 goals and six assists in her career at Quinnipiac.
"It was an honor to play in the Senior Bowl because not many people are chosen to play," said McLoughlin. "In addition to being captain this year, it was more than I could have asked for. It was a great experience and I had a lot of fun playing with some really talented players."
McLoughlin was one of five players from the Northeast Conference selected to play in the NEWISA Senior Bowl. Sacred Heart and Central Connecticut State each had two players represented. The other remaining Division I players came from universities, including Yale, Connecticut, Boston University, Boston College, Harvard, Holy Cross, Dartmouth and Providence.
