Fischer Named Second-Team All-Conference

Worcester, Mass. – Clark University women's soccer striker Kara Fischer (Belmont, Mass.) was named New England Women's And Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) second-team all-conference it was announced on Wednesday morning by the league's Executive Director, Patrick Summers.

The award comes following a vote of the league's 11 head coaches and marks the program's first all-conference selection since Janelle Pasternack collected first-team honors in 2013.

Fischer was spectacular in her senior campaign, finishing first on the team in goals scored (7), points (15) and shots (46).

The team flourished with Fischer leading the way as the Scarlet and White went 8-9-1 on the season and missed out on postseason play on the final day of the regular season.

For Fischer, meanwhile, she had both goals in a 2-1 win over Framingham State and then added two more tallies in a 3-0 win at New England College.

She had another two-goal effort, this time in a 4-1 win at Babson before finding the back of the net in her final collegiate contest at Emerson.

Fischer's career really took off during her junior season. After scoring just two combined goals in her first two seasons, she scored 13 in her last two years and finished her standout career with 35 points (15 goals, five assists).

A six-time Dean's List selection and three-time academic all-conference honoree, Fischer currently awaiting word to see if she will be named just the fourth Academic All-American in school history. The results of the national vote will come later this month.
