PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The National Soccer Coaches Association of America announced the All-New England Division III Women’s Soccer Team, and three Plymouth State College players were chosen for their exceptional play.

Junior midfielder Erin Pepe (Franklin, MA) was selected to the All-New Second Team, while junior striker Caitlin Cook (Cutchogue, NY) and sophomore defender Mary Young (Rockland, MA) picked up Third Team honors.

Pepe, a defensive-minded midfielder, started every game for the Panthers this past season, scoring a goal and four assists. The junior is a quick-thinking playmaker that was the start of many rushes for Plymouth State. Pepe is a two-time Little East Conference All-Star, earning the honor in ’96 and ’98.

Cook captured All-New England honors with a stellar offensive season for the Panthers. The junior forward recorded a career-high 10 goals and a team-leading 23 points. An LEC First Team pick, Cook was named Player of the Week in September for striking five goals and collecting two assists in just two games.

Young was a standout defender for the Panthers, earning Third Team honors. She moved into the starting line-up midway through her freshman season in ’97, and started every game this year as a sophomore. She helped lead the Panther defense that registered six shutouts, and was also a key player in taking free kicks. Young was named MVP of PSC’s annual Homecoming contest, and also was selected to the LEC All-Star Team for the first time in her career.

PSC finished the season with an overall record of 9-7-0 and an LEC mark of 5-2-0 under first-year head coach Beth Field. A season plagued by injuries, the Panthers made their 16th consecutive post-season appearance by lost to Gordon College on penalty kicks in the first round of the ECAC New England Tournament. Losing only five seniors, Plymouth State is looking forward to a strong season in 1999.
