FROSTBURG, MD —
Frostburg State senior Adey Ntam (Silver Spring, Md./John F. Kennedy)
and freshman Page Macey (Linthicum, Md./North County)
have been named to the 2002 Brine/Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association South Atlantic Regional All-America Team.
Ntam, a defender, was a first-team selection for the first time in her career after earning second-team honors each of the previous two seasons.
Known for her tremendous speed and intensity, Ntam led the Bobcats with 100 ground balls and ranks second in most recent NCAA Division III national statistics with 7.14 ground balls per game.
Ntam also scored a career-high six goals and added three assists this season.
"The most impressive thing about Adey was her ability to make a big defensive play with her hustle," said fourth-year head coach Eric Day. "She was by far one of the most explosive players on the field this year."
Macey was named a second-team regional All-American after enjoying a stellar collegiate debut season. She led the Bobcats with 52 goals and 66 points, and she finished second on the team with 14 assists.
Macey, who was just four goals shy of the FSU single-season record of 56 set by Laura Hemmings in 1999, was tied for 20th in the most recent national statistics with 3.71 goals per game.
Her 13-point performance against Methodist on March 28 is tied for the second-highest single-game total in Division III this season.
"Even after teams realized Page was our go-to player they still couldn't stop her," Day said. "She has an excellent shot and a great understanding of the game. For a freshman to walk in and almost break the single-season goals record is an impressive accomplishment, especially considering our strength of schedule."
The Bobcats finished 6-8 overall against a slate featuring four nationally ranked teams.
