EWING, NJ —
Senior Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany)
and junior Kelly True (Warfordsburg, Pa./Southern Fulton)
were both named to the 2005 ESPN the Magazine
Academic All-District II College Division Women’s Basketball First Team as selected by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Frostburg State was the only school in District II to have two players named to the first team, while Franklin & Marshall had one on the second team and one on the third team.
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 Academic All-District second team last season, carries a 3.635 grade point average in wildlife and fisheries.
True, a third-team pick last year, owns a perfect 4.0 in early childhood/elementary education.
Both move onto the national ballot for the 2005 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America squad as selected by CoSIDA members.
Little currently leads the Bobcats with 19.0 points and 10.9 rebounds per game, and she is also first on the team with 45 blocks and second with 53 steals.
She has enjoyed one of the finest careers in Bobcat women’s basketball history and ranks fifth on both the FSU all-time scoring and rebounding charts with 1,581 points and 900 rebounds, respectively.
She is just 37 points away from tying Kim Faust (1,624) for fourth on the scoring list, while her 18.3 career scoring average ranks first in FSU history.
True is second on the team in rebounding (6.7) and third in scoring (8.9), and her 90.3 (56-62) free-throw percentage tops the AMCC.
Little and True have led Frostburg State to a 19-6 regular-season record as well as a 16-2 mark in the AMCC.
The Bobcats clinched the AMCC regular-season title and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming AMCC Tournament.
FSU receives a first-round bye and will host the AMCC semifinals and final Friday and Saturday, February 25-26 at Bobcat Arena.
