Three Panthers named to LEC All-Star Team

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Three Plymouth State College women's soccer players were recognized when the Little East Conference announced its annual All-Star Team for 2001 as voted by the league's head coaches.

Seniors Carrie Poulin (Westfield, Mass.) and Jill Wolters (Vernon, N.J.) were selected to the All-LEC First Team, and junior Sandra Petlick (New Castle, N.H.) was a Second Team choice. It is the third All-Conference selection for Poulin, the second for Wolters, and the first for Petlick.

Poulin had a solid senior season to wrap up and outstanding career in a Panther uniform. She scored 10 goals and added four assists, including two goals in a game twice and four in a game once. Poulin shared the team lead and ranked seventh in the conference in scoring. She finishes her 60-game career with 49 goals, nine assists and 107 points, which ranks second on the all-time PSC list for goals and third in points.

Wolters served as one of the most versatile players on the team. She was selected First Team All-Conference as a back for the second straight year, and earned it with strong defensive play. She also saw playing time as a striker, and contributed four goals and two assists to rank third on the team in scoring. She had a memorable performance in the regular season finale at Rhode Island College, scoring two goals, including the game-winner late in the second overtime, to help PSC clinch an LEC play-off berth.

Petlick turned in a strong junior season at striker, although she also saw some playing time at midfield. She shared the team scoring lead and tied for seventh in the LEC in scoring with 10 goals and four assists. Petlick scored two goals in a game four times, including the LEC Tournament first-round victory at Rhode Island College. She finished third on the team in scoring as a freshman, and second on the squad last season.

Plymouth State finished with a disappointing 7-10-0 overall record. The Panthers tied for third in the LEC regular season and earned an LEC Tournament first-round victory over Rhode Island College, but was eliminated in the semifinals by eventual champion Western Connecticut.
