Martin Named First-Team CoSIDA Academic All-America

June 17, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College senior women's lacrosse tri-captain Liz Martin (Baltimore, MD) was named to the 2003-04 Academic All-America Womenís College Division At-Large Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). A first-team selection, Martin was the only women's at-large Academic All-America selection from the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC), after earning First-Team CoSIDA Academic All-District honors.

Transferring from Goucher College following her rookie year, Martin - a four-time All-America and two-time National Midfielder of the Year - tallied a whopping 185 goals in just three seasons at Amherst, eclipsing the previous school record of 184, held by Kristin Osborn '01. Combining her totals from Goucher and Amherst, she graduates as the 13th leading scorer in NCAA Division III history with 338 career points. She's also tied for fifth in NCAA history with 270 career goals. An economics major, Martin is a three-time All-NESCAC selection, leading the Jeffs to three straight NCAA Final Four appearances and the program's first-ever NCAA Championship in 2003.

CoSIDA selects Academic All-America teams in 12 programs: football, women's volleyball, men's soccer, women's soccer, men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball, softball, men's track & field/cross country, women's track & field/cross country, men's at-large and women's at-large. Nominees must be starters or important reserves with legitimate athletic credentials and at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
