GIBSONIA, Pa. —
Seven Frostburg State players were named to the 2005 All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Softball Team released by the league office last week. The Bobcats tied regular-season champion La Roche with three first-team selections and also had two second-team and two honorable mention honorees.
Junior first baseman Trish Brown (Manchester, Md./North Carroll), junior pitcher Jen Cook (Cresaptown, Md./Allegany) and sophomore outfielder Lori Potts (Purcellville, Va./Loudoun Valley) earned first-team honors.
Brown was a repeat first-team selection after finishing second on the Bobcats with a .425 batting average and leading FSU with 48 hits, 10 doubles, three triples, four home runs, a school-record 38 RBIs and a .673 slugging percentage.
She also posted a stellar .988 fielding percentage, making just three errors in 254 chances.
Brown also became FSU’s all-time leader in hits (130), home runs (12), RBIs (92) and total bases (207) this season, and her current .426 career batting average ranks first as well.
Cook, who joined the Bobcats after playing two seasons at nearby Allegany College of Maryland, went 8-8 with a team-best 2.56 earned run average.
She appeared in 20 games, making 15 starts, and she tossed seven complete games while tying the FSU single-season record of five shutouts set by Potts in 2004.
Cook tossed a pair of two-hit shutouts and also had three three-hit complete-game victories.
Potts took home first-team honors for the second year in a row after leading the Bobcats with a .448 batting average and 17 walks.
She tied Brown for the team lead in doubles (10) and ranked second on the squad in runs (27), hits (43), triples (2), total bases (57), slugging percentage (.594) and on-base percentage (.492).
Potts was also 4-5 with a 3.32 ERA in the circle.
Junior shortstop Bethany Seyler (Walkersville, Md./Walkersville) and junior designated player Krystal Dixon (Westminster, Md./Westminster) were both named to the second team.
Seyler, who transferred from Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) after playing a year at Columbia Union, was fourth on the team with a .336 batting average.
She finished second with nine doubles and 21 RBIs, was third with 48 total bases and a .516 slugging percentage and ranked fourth with 34 hits and a .429 on-base percentage. She also tied for fourth with 22 runs scored.
Dixon earned repeat second-team honors after hitting .289 with two doubles and 11 RBIs.
Senior outfielder Amanda Boswell (Marbury, Md./Lackey) and junior third baseman Sarah Savoye (Davidsonville, Md./South River) took home honorable mention honors.
Boswell, who earned first-team accolades at second base last year, made the switch to the left field this season and continued to spark the Bobcats from the top of the lineup. She hit .304 with 35 hits and 13 RBIs, and she led the team with 28 runs and seven stolen bases.
Savoye hit .283 with seven doubles, one triple and 15 RBIs while making just five errors.
The Bobcats finished 17-19 overall and 11-7 in the AMCC. FSU advanced to the AMCC Tournament for the third straight year, beating Hilbert 14-0 in the play-in round before dropping 4-2 contests to top-seeded La Roche and sixth-seeded Penn State Behrend.
