Warner, Trigeiro Earn Postseason Awards

May 9, 2003

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College first-year softball players Miya Warner (Berkeley, CA) and Laura Trigeiro (Reston, VA) were named all-league by the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) on Friday. Warner was also tabbed Third-Team Louisville Slugger Division III All-New England by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA).

Warner was one of three pitchers to earn first-team All-NESCAC honors after leading the conference in appearances (26), starts (22), strikeouts (181), innings pitched (164.2) and wins (12), while finishing third in the league with a 1.66 ERA. She earned NESCAC Player of the Week plaudits on March 31, tossing a pair of complete game victories in a doubleheader sweep over West Division rival Hamilton College and pitching her first career no-hitter - a seven-strikeout gem - in a 3-0 win over Clark University. Warner notched all 12 of Amherst’s victories in 2003 and held opponents to a meager .207 batting average.

Trigeiro, a Second-Team All-NESCAC selection, had a breakout rookie campaign, finishing ninth in the conference in batting (.386) and eighth in on-base percentage (.452) while playing stellar defense at first base. Trigeiro led Amherst in a bevy of statistical categories, including hits (32) and triples (2), and tied for the team lead in runs (13), doubles (4) and homers (1).

With six freshman and only three seniors, Amherst finished 12-15 overall and 4-4 in conference play, narrowly missing out on a berth in the four-team NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament. Four of Amherst’s top six hitters in 2003 were first-year players.
