Queener, Bonnel Named CC Players of Year

from press release

HIGH POINT, N.C. – A 14-1 overall record, perfect 7-0 league record and a ninth straight regular season league championship have all helped contribute to a program record tying nine All-Conference Carolinas selections as well as Coach of the Year honors for Scott Tucker and Co-Player of the Year for senior attack Sylvia Queener (Penn Yan, N.Y.).

Tucker has helped lead the Saints to another tremendous season which has included a No. 2 national ranking, 10 straight wins and an average of 16.13 goals per game. It is the seventh time he has been named Conference Carolinas Coach of the Year. He also won the award in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012.

Queener has been one of the most explosive players in the league this season and is among the team leaders with 35 goals, 39 assists and 74 points. Entering the week she is fifth in the country in points, eighth in assists and is 36th in goals scored while ranking second in the conference in points and third in assists. This season she has scored at least three goals in seven games and had a minimum of three assists in six games. She shares the award with Pfeiffer's Shannon Bonnel.

Joining Queener on the First-Team are junior attack Sarah Oor (Uxbridge, Canada), senior midfielder Chelsea Treat (Penn Yan, N.Y.), junior midfielder Maia Czarnecki (Oswego, N.Y.), senior defender Skylar Marcoux (Woodbine, Md.) and senior goalkeeper Rashelle McLellan (East Lyme, Conn.).

Oor has fueled the Limestone offense like no one before her as she has a program record 57 assists this season to go along with 23 goals and 80 points. In her last outing at Belmont Abbey she broke her own record for assists in a season as well as the career mark with her 139th. She now has 142 for her career.

Treat has produced another tremendous season with 49 goals and four assists for 53 points along with 35 groundballs while Czarnecki and Marcoux have anchored the defense in front of McLellan. Czarnecki leads the club with 24 caused turnovers to go along with 35 groundballs and Marcoux has 19 groundballs, 10 draw controls and three caused turnovers. McLellan has started all 15 games, logging just over 798 minutes and posting a 5.86 goals against average. She is 14-1 on the season.

Rounding out the Saints record tying nine All-Conference selections are Second-Team choices sophomore midfielder Sam McCarrick (Oswego, N.Y.), junior midfielder Katie Farrell (Brooks, Ga.) and junior defender Samantha Cock (Terra Cotta, Ontario, Canada).

McCarrick has not lost a step since winning Freshman of the Year last season as she has 40 goals and eight assists for 48 points to go along with 25 groundballs and 19 draw controls. Farrell is easily having the best season of her career despite not starting a single game. So far this year she has 34 goals, four assists, 38 points, 19 groundballs and 26 draw controls. Cock has started all 15 games and delivered14 caused turnovers, 20 groundballs and 13 draw controls.

For Oor, it is her third All-Conference selection in as many seasons following First-Team honors last year and Second-Team as a freshman in 2011. McCarrick, Marcoux and Queener have each been named twice with each earning a First- and Second-Team selection. Treat collects her third All-Conference honor and second First-Team selection while McLellan picks up her second First-Team recognition. Czarnecki, Farrell and Cock are all first-time choices.

Limestone returns to action in the Conference Carolinas Tournament this afternoon at 2 p.m. They will face No. 4 seed Belmont Abbey in the semifinals with the winner advancing to the championship to face either No. 3 seed Queens or No. 2 seed Pfeiffer on Sunday.
