"The tryout was an intense experience, and like nothing I had ever been through. It is truly an honor to be chosen. I now have the opportunity to play with some of the best players in the world and to represent the United States and Hofstra University at the highest level of women's lacrosse." - Kimberly Hillier
Kimberly Hillier '07 has been invited by U.S. Lacrosse to the final tryouts for the U.S. Women's Developmental and Elite teams.
Hillier, along with 97 other players, was selected from a pool of approximately 180 players who competed during the first round of tryouts in the Stars and Stripes Division at the U.S. Lacrosse Women's Division National Tournament held at
Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on May 26 and 27, 2007.
The final tryouts for the national teams were held at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, on August 3 through 5.
Hillier, an attacker, became just the fourth player in program history to twice achieve All-American status, joining Stephanie Clarke (1996 and 1997), Kathleen Mikowski (2001 and 2003) and Bridget Eder (2004 and 2005). A four-time all-region selection, Hillier was a second team All-American in 2006 and a third team honoree this past season.
The first women's lacrosse student-athlete in Hofstra's Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) history to be named to the All-CAA first team all four years, Hillier tied for the team lead with 52 points this season. She was first in assists with 23, while ranking third with 29 goals.
Kimberly Hillier finished her career second all-time in program history in points (215), tied for first in assists (82), third in goals (133), fifth in ground balls (120), ninth in caused turnovers (42) and second in draw controls (143).
Hillier helped lead Hofstra to its second-ever NCAA Championship appearance, as the Pride defeated James Madison in the CAA title game before falling to Johns Hopkins in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
