Murray and Crane received NEAC All-Conference honors

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) has announced its 2012 NAC West Division* All-Conference selections, with first, second and third team honors being awarded by position to a total of 36 student-athletes, as selected by the conference coaches.

The NEAC has also announced its individual women’s lacrosse award winners.  Cazenovia College senior midfielder Christy Foster (Canton, N.Y.) was selected as the Offensive Player of the Year after putting together a record-breaking season for the Wildcats.  Through 16 games, Foster registered 74 points, 69 goals, 56 groundballs, 67 draw controls and 31 caused turnovers, which placed her first on the team and in the top five in the conference for each of those categories.  Her point total also helped her become Cazenovia’s all-time career points leader, a milestone she achieved a week ago that helped her garner a NAC West Offensive Student-Athlete of Week honor.

Keuka College junior Molly Hogan (Horseheads, N.Y.) was named the Defensive Player of the Year after a dominating season guarding the net for the Storm. Hogan was among the stingiest goalies in the country, as she is currently the national leader in save percentage (.593) while being third nationally and leading the conference in goals-against average (6.10).  She also made 96 saves on the season and went 10-2 overall, while twice being honored by both the NEAC and the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) as its Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week.

Morrisville State’s Shelby Wood (Duanesburg, N.Y.) was chosen as the inaugural Rookie of the Year after a sensational freshman campaign.  Wood led the West Division in points (86) and was second in goals (69), while leading the conference in caused turnovers (31) and finishing in the top 10 in assists (17), groundballs (55) and draw controls (64).  She was selected as the division’s Student-Athlete of the Week three times, twice for offense or once for defense.

The Coach of the Year award went to Morrisville State’s Amanda Nobis.  Nobis led the Mustangs to the West Division regular season championship with a perfect 9-0 record, while also guiding her squad to a program-best 11-4 overall record.
