Softball, Women's Lacrosse & Baseball Players Earn ECAC All-Region Honors

June 5, 2002

AMHERST, MA Amherst College placed six student-athletes from three different sports on ECAC Division III New England All-Star Teams this week. From women's lacrosse, senior Cara Coscarelli (W. Hartford, CT), junior Abby Ouimet (Hatfield, MA) and sophomore Liz Martin (Baltimore, MD) were First-Team selections, while softball players Gina Scribner (Star, ID) and Lauren Peloquin (Berkley, MA) were named Second-Team and Honorable Mention ECAC All-New England, respectively. From the baseball team, sophomore third baseman Matt Potter (Durham, NC) was an Honorable Mention ECAC All-New England selection, as well as a National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Third-Team New England Region All-American.

Amherst's women's lacrosse team finished with a 14-3 record and earned its second consecutive trip to the NCAA Final Four in 2002. Coscarelli, who was also a First-Team All-NESCAC and Second-Team IWLCA All-America selection, paced the defense with a team-high 58 groundballs and finished second on the squad with 32 caused turnovers. Ouimet, a First-Team IWLCA All-American and All-NESCAC pick, netted 41 goals and a conference-high 46 assists, while leading the NESCAC in total points (87). Martin was a Second-Team IWLCA All-American and First-Team All-NESCAC honoree, leading the Jeffs with 53 goals and 42 draw controls.

On the softball diamond, Scribner, a sophomore first baseman, paced Amherst with a .406 batting average, 18 RBI's, 10 doubles and two home runs all team-highs improving on her NESCAC Rookie of the Year campaign in 2001. Peloquin, a senior pitcher, posted a 14-9 record, a 1.87 ERA and 165 strikeouts in 165.0 innings, rounding out her career as a four-time All-NESCAC selection. She was also a Third-Team All-American as a first-year, the NESCAC Player of the Year as a sophomore and the Conference Pitcher of the Year as a junior. Peloquin holds nearly every single-season and career pitching record at Amherst.

Meanwhile, Potter had a breakout year on the Amherst baseball team, hitting safely in the Jeffs' first 13 games and eventually finishing fourth in the NESCAC in batting (.409). He also led the Jeffs in hits (52) and RBI's (24), was perfect on the base paths stealing six bases in six attempts and was a First-Team All-NESCAC selection.
