PRINCETON, N.J. -- Former Princeton men's lacrosse players Jesse Hubbard and Josh Sims as well as current Penn assistant coach Brian Dougherty have been named to the Major League Lacrosse 10th Anniversary team in a vote of fans on the league's website.
Hubbard, an attackman and a 1998 Princeton grad, scored 247 goals in his eight years in MLL, and he held the league's career scoring record when he retired before Tim Goettelmann surpassed it near the end of this season. Hubbard, who spent most of his career with the New Jersey Pride before finishing up with the Los Angeles Riptide, holds the MLL record with 54 goals in a season, which he set in 2002.
Hubbard is Princeton's career leader with 163 goals, and his 53 goals in 1996 are the school single-season record. Princeton won the NCAA championship each of his final three years, and he was a two-time first-team All-America selection.
Sims graduated in 2000 after being a three-time first-team All-America. He has played in all 10 seasons of Major League Lacrosse, and his 29 career playoff goals are the league record.
After helping Princeton to two NCAA titles and three NCAA finals, Sims won two MLL titles with the Bayhawks and came close to adding a third last year with the Denver Outlaws. He played this year for Toronto and Chicago, and he has 130 career goals and 209 career points in 89 career games.
Dougherty’s name is found on nearly all of the MLL’s all-time goalkeeper records and he owns the top mark in games played (105), minutes played (5,945), saves (1,752) and goalkeeper wins (60). He is second in save percentage (.579) and third in goals against average (12.84). A three-time MLL Champion, Dougherty was named the MLL’s Goalie of the Year on three occasions.
