FROSTBURG, MD — Following Frostburg State’s third straight Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference championship, the conference announced its post-season awards. Leading the way was senior Lauren Petrick (Denton, Md./North Caroline), who was named the 2004 AMCC Player of the Year, and Head Coach Jeff Billington, who was named the 2004 AMCC Co-Coach of the Year.

Petrick, who was voted the 2003 AMCC Player of the Year and 2004 Preseason Player of the Year, was chosen to the All-AMCC first team for the fourth straight season. She ranks fourth in the conference with 3.93 kills per game and eighth with a .271 hitting percentage.

This season, Petrick moved into second place on the schools all-time kills list with 1,501 and fifth on the career digs chart with 1,053.

Along with Petrick, seniors Carrie Ness (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key), Jodi Carpenter (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore) and Sam Seyfferth (Annapolis, Md./Broadneck) were also named to the All-AMCC first team.

Ness, who ranks seventh in the conference with 6.04 assists per game, was named to the All-AMCC first team for the third time in her career. She currently ranks second in Frostburg State history with 3494 assists, third with 177 service aces and sixth with 195 blocks.

Carpenter was named to the All-AMCC first team after receiving second-team honors a year ago. Carpenter leads the AMCC with a .405 hitting percentage. She also ranks third in the conference with 1.26 blocks per game and fifth with 3.67 kills per game.

Seyfferth ranks third in the conference with 4.97 digs per game and she is currently the school career record holder with 1,534 digs.

Junior Carly McDonald (Owings, Md./Northern) was named to the All-AMCC Honorable Mention team. She ranks first on the team in service aces with 47, second with 305 digs and third with 242 kills.

His Bobcats have won their last 35 conference contests and the last three conference tournament championships. Under Billington, Frostburg State has compiled an 99-37 overall record and a 39-6 record in the AMCC.
