|Kasmarcik named first team America East All-Conference|
Senior goalkeeper Lauren Cherry (Wyncote, Pa./Cheltenham) was selected to the second team, senior midfielder Amanda Norman (Middletown, N.Y.) and freshman back Meghan Taylor (Campbell Hall, N.Y./Washingtonville) were on the honorable mention unit, and freshman midfielder Lauren Massey (Burlington, Ontario/Notre Dame) was picked for the all-rookie team.
Kasmarcik led the entire conference in scoring with 12 goals, and tied for top honors in points with 30 (1.67 per game). With her senior season still to come, she has 39 career goals, which ranks third all-time at Binghamton, and 95 points, which ranks fourth.
We knew that Tracy was a top forward in this league and a premier player in this region, said BU head coach Jeff Leightman, whose team placed sixth in the America East with a 3-4-1 record. It was nice to see that the other coaches thought the same, even in our first year in the conference. She can be dangerous, and even if shes not scoring, she has to be accounted for.
Leightman was especially pleased with the accolades earned by Cherry, whose athletic talent and physical durability helped preserve the teams successful season. Without the luxury of a back-up keeper and without BUs traditional offensive support, Cherry started and played every minute of all 18 games, posting four shutouts with a 1.05 goals against average. Her 114 saves led the America East, and represented the second-highest single-season total in school history. Cherrys 317 career saves also ranks second.
I thought Lauren had a terrific year, Leightman said. She played at the top of her game, and closed out her career in outstanding fashion. To be honest, without her playing well this year we could have been in trouble in certain spots. Unfortunately, we owed her a little more offensively.
Norman collected a conference-best 10 assists from her central midfield position, Massey picked up six points in her first season at midfield, and Taylor anchored a BU back line that held 14 of 18 opponents to one goal or less. Taylor, who started every game at center back, also chipped in two game-winning goals.
