Nine Huskies Named to All-PSAC Lacrosse Team

BLOOMSBURG—Nine members of the Bloomsburg University lacrosse team have been named All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) for the 2003 season. Junior Georgia Carinci (Springmount/Perkiomen Valley) was named the Player of the Year and head coach Kathy Frick was honored as Coach of the Year.

Frick is in her fifth season as the Huskies' head coach. This season she guided the Huskies to their third ever PSAC Championship, the second under her leadership. Her first PSAC Championship came in 2000 when she was named the Division II Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association. Frick has coached eight players to fifteen All-American Awards in just four seasons.

Carinci leads the Huskies in scoring this season with a team-high 71 points on the year (42 goals-29 assists). She was named the MVP of the PSAC title game after she scoring five goals and adding an assist. Carinci is also closing in the school record for most points in a career. She needs just four points to tie and five to break the mark of 183 set by Kelly Cuthbert who played from 1986-89. Carinci is also four points shy of tying the school record for most points in a season. Meghan Vernon holds the mark of 75 set in 1995. Carinci was a second-team All-PSAC selection last season.

Joining Carinci on the first-team offense is senior Katie O'Neill (Exton/Downington). She scored a team-high 45 goals this season and also added two assists. She is second in the PSAC in goals per game with 3.21.

Senior Katie Roth (Dresher/Upper Dublin) and juniors Julie Minogue (Chalfont/Central Bucks West) and Marcie Zilinski (Barto/Boyertown) were named to the first-team on defense. They have helped hold their opponents to 128 goals this season. Minogue, a two-time first-team selection, has also scored 22 goals and added seven assists. Zilinski was named second-team All-PSAC last season.

Junior Linda Schultz (Doylestown/C. B. West) was named the first-team goalkeeper. The only goalie on the roster, Schultz has played every minute of every game this season. She has allowed just 128 goals, 9.14 per game, and has a saves percentage of .524.

Sheila Zilinski (Barto/Boyertown) and Megan Pry (Downington/Downington) were both named to the second team on offense. Zilinski, a second-team selection a year ago, scored 30 goals this season and added six assists. Pry, who is the school's all-time leader in assists with 82, has scored 18 goals this season and has a team-high 39 assists this season. Pry tied a Bloomsburg single-game record when she recorded five assists in the Huskies win over West Chester for the PSAC title.

Junior Nicole Settanni (Malvern/Great Valley) was named to the second-team defense. She was also a second-team selection last season.

Bloomsburg will play Longwood University in the NCAA Division II semi-final game this Saturday at 2 p.m. at Stonehill College in Easton, MA.
