Diamond Cleans Up at IWLCA All-America Banquet

June 9, 2003

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College senior tri-captain Brooke Diamond (Longmeadow, MA) was named both the Division III Ensign C. Markland Kelly Goaltender of the Year and the Division III Scholar Athlete of the Year at the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-America Banquet in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday.

Diamond capped an outstanding three-sport career with Most Outstanding Player honors at the 2003 NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament, combining for 25 saves and surrendering just 19 goals in the national semifinals and championship game, while leading Amherst to its first-ever national championship in the sport. The three-sport captain, two-time All-NESCAC and First-Team All-America selection was voted the IWLCA Division III Goaltender of the Year in 2002 and the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse Division III Goaltender of the Year 2003 and is a three-time NCAA All-Tournament honoree.

Diamond was also a First-Team All-NESCAC goalkeeper and two-time First-Team Verizon/CoSIDA District 1 All-Academic selection in women’s soccer, leading the Jeffs to their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Championship game in 2001 and an ECAC title in 2000.

As a captain on the women’s basketball team, Diamond combined for 179 points, 203 rebounds, 50 assists and 33 steals, and helped lead the Jeffs to 61 wins over four seasons.

As part of Commencement Weekend at Amherst, she was presented the Howard Hill Mossman Trophy, awarded annually to the member of the senior class who has brought, during his or her four years, the greatest honor in athletics to his or her alma mater.
