Faust, Myers Named to All-AMCC Team
02/27/2002

ERIE, PA — Juniors Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) and Holly Myers (York, Pa./West York) were named to the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Women's Basketball Team in an announcement by the league Monday.

Faust, last year's AMCC Player of the Year, earned her second straight All-AMCC first team selection after leading Frostburg State with 18.5 points and 10.6 rebounds.

The 5-11 forward/center reached double-digit scoring figures in 23 of FSU's 26 games and recorded 13 double-doubles, including six straight and 11 times in a 13-game stretch.

Faust, who moved into ninth place on FSU's all-time scoring list with 1,209 points, led the Bobcats with a 51.8 (188-of-363) field goal percentage and added a team-high 53 steals.

Her top games included a 26-point, 22-rebound performance against Lake Erie and a 28-point, 19-rebound effort versus La Roche. The 22 rebounds was a career-high and the second-highest single-game total in school history, behind Sylvia Lee's 27 caroms against UMBC in 1975-76.

Faust, who also topped the Bobcats with 16 blocks, earned AMCC Player of the Week honors three times during the season.

"Kim had another great year for us," said FSU first-year head coach Jody Pepple. "She started out slow due to a new coaching style and system, but once the team adapted, she was unstoppable in the post. She's a very hard worker who's dedicated to the success of the team. It's a great honor for her to be considered one of the top five players in the AMCC."

Myers earned honorable mention honors after finishing second on the team in scoring at a career-high 10.3 points per game and leading FSU with 78 assists. She was also second on the team with 13 blocks and third on the squad with 44 steals.

Myers hit a single-season school record 58 three-pointers this year and became FSU's career leader in made three-pointers with 128 in her three seasons, shattering the former mark of 86 set by Kara Reed from 1994-1998.

Myers also holds the FSU career record with 401 three-point attempts, easily surpassing Reed's 292 tries.

Myers led the team in scoring once this season when she hit for a career-high 23 points against Pitt-Greensburg, and she scored in double-digits 15 times.

"Holly had to overcome an injury that hampered her play the last month of the season, and she went out and did her job," added Pepple. "Breaking the school three-point record was a great accomplishment for her, and she'll be looked upon to lead and set an example for our underclassmen next year."

The other All-AMCC first team selections were Erin Arnold and Annie Sral of Pitt-Greensburg, Jillian Kliner of Penn State Altoona and Erin Phillips of Penn State Behrend. Phillips was named the league's Most Valuable Player, La Roche guard Sherry Hogue was voted the Newcomer of the Year and Pitt-Greensburg's Carol Gelet was selected the Coach of the Year.

The Bobcats finished 8-18 overall and 3-9 in the AMCC this past season.
