Sokol was one of four defenders named to the 12-member first team. She was an ECAC Division III Upstate all-star in 2010.
Sokol received second team All-America honors in May, and is the sixth two-time All-American in Hamilton women's lacrosse history. She was a first team All-American in 2010 after she helped lead Hamilton to the NCAA title game.
The 2012 NESCAC all-conference first team honoree tied for ninth in the conference with 45 draw controls, and ranked 10th with 1.41 caused turnovers per game. She was selected to play in the Division III North-South Senior All-Star Game in Downington, Pa., on June 16. Sokol was an all-region selection for the Empire Region in 2010 and 2012.
Sokol helped lead Hamilton (7-10 overall, 4-6 NESCAC) to the 2012 NESCAC Championship semifinals as the No. 7 seed in the Continentals' first year in the conference. Hamilton defeated Colby College 9-4 in the quarterfinals before the Continentals fell 9-8 in overtime to eventual conference and national champion Trinity College. Hamilton competed in the Liberty League for lacrosse from 1996 to 2011.
