FROSTBURG, MD —
Frostburg State junior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany)
and sophomore Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton)
were both named to the 2003-04 Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District II College Division Women's Basketball Team Thursday.
Frostburg State was the only school in District II to have two players named to the 15-member squad. District II consists of NCAA Division II and III colleges and universities from Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
"Tracey and Kelly are both very deserving of this honor," said Bobcat head coach Jody Pepple. "They've proven they can handle the high demands of academics and athletics, and they are excellent representatives of Frostburg State University as well as the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference."
Little, who was named to the second team, carries a 3.70 grade point average in wildlife and fisheries, while True, who was selected to the third team, carries a perfect 4.0 GPA in early childhood education.
The two have also posted impressive numbers on the court this season.
Little leads the AMCC in scoring (19.1 ppg), rebounding (11.0 rpg) and blocks (2.13 bpg) and became the 12th player in FSU women's basketball history to reach the 1,000-point plateau with her 19 points in a 77-54 win over Penn State Altoona Wednesday night.
Little has led FSU in scoring in 17 games and in rebounding 12 times this season. She also has a team-high 13 double-doubles this year.
True currently ranks second on the team in both rebounding (9.5 rpg) and steals (39), and she is third in scoring (10.0 ppg). She has nine double-doubles on the year.
Frostburg State (14-10, 5-6 AMCC) closes out its regular season Saturday at La Roche at 4 pm. With a win, the Bobcats will secure the No. 3 seed in the AMCC Tournament and will host a first-round game Wednesday, February 25.
A loss would make FSU either the No. 4 or 5 seed (depending on the outcomes of Saturday's other AMCC games) and would send the Bobcats on the road for the opening round.
