AMHERST, MA - Amherst College women's lacrosse standouts Abby Ouimet (Hatfield, MA) and Liz Martin (Baltimore, MD) and men's lacrosse rookie midfielder Andrew Wilcox (Ancramdale, NY) were each named Division III New England All-Stars by the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) this week.
Martin, a junior midfielder, and Ouimet, a senior attacker, were both first-team selections after leading the Jeffs to their first-ever NCAA Division III National Championship. Ouimet, a three-time All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) honoree and three-time All-American, graduates as the College's career leader in points (271) and assists (129) after leading the NESCAC with 103 points and finishing second in the conference with 46 assists - both school records - in 2003. She tallied a team-high 21 points on 12 goals and nine assists in four NCAA Tournament games and was one of four Amherst players named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team. Ouimet was also a two-time STX/NFHCA Division III All- Region selection in field hockey.
A two-time All-American and the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse Division III Midfielder of the Year, Martin set a school record and led the NESCAC with 66 goals, 14 of which came in NCAA Tournament play, including a six-goal performance in the national championship game. A two-time First-Team All-NESCAC selection, Martin finished fourth in the conference with 83 points and was named to the NCAA All-Tournament team in 2003.
On the men's side, Wilcox, a Second-Team All-ECAC pick, made an immediate splash in the midfield, pacing the Jeffs with 61 ground balls and earning First-Team All-NESCAC honors. Wilcox helped lead the Jeffs to a 10-5 overall record and the No. 4 seed in the NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament, where they downed Williams 12-8 in the first round before bowing to top-seeded Middlebury 14-8 in the semifinals.
