WESTMINSTER - Several Western Maryland College student-athletes were honored by the Middle Atlantic Conference for their work both on the field and in the classroom.

Green Terror volleyball player Diana Palmer was named to the MAC all-star team after leading Western Maryland to its second straight Southwest Section title and the runner-up spot in the conference's post-season tournament.

Overall, the team finished 33-8 to run its string of consecutive winning seasons to 19.

Palmer, a 5-foot-8 senior tri-captain, was the team leader in kills with 380, solo blocks with 12 and digs with 409. The two-time MAC All-Star also compiled 48 service aces, nine block assists and a .276 hitting percentage.

Sophomore Jodi Livingston was selected to the MAC field hockey all-star team for the second consecutive year. Livingston scored eight goals from her wing position to lead the Green Terrors in scoring with 16 points.

Western Maryland's field hockey team was 6-5-2 overall and 2-3 in the MAC-Southwest Section.

Claudia Henemyre, a junior goalkeeper, earned her first selection to the conference's women's soccer all-star unit. Henemyre, who had one shutout and shared in a second, made 170 saves and allowed just 19 goals for a .899 save percentage.

The Green Terrors, under first-year head coach Jenny Flynn, a Liberty High and Western Maryland graduate, ended the season with a 4-7-1 overall mark and a 1-4 record in the MAC-Western Division.

Eight Western Maryland student-athletes qualified for the MAC Fall Academic Honor Roll, open to players with at least sophomore academic and athletic standing and a 3.4 cumulative grade-point average who were starters or significant contributors to their teams.

Three of the eight honorees came from the women's soccer team, including Henemyre. The others were junior Amye Walker and sophomore Cindy Tokar of Union Bridge, a Linganore High School graduate.

For Henemyre and Walker, it was their second time on the Honor Roll, after being included on the 1990 spring list.

Western Maryland's women's cross country team was next with two Academic Honor Roll additions. Sophomores Dianne Byerly and Shannon Franklin, a Hampstead resident and North Carroll High grad, each made their first appearance on the roster.

The Green Terror men's cross country team, along with the field hockey and volleyball squads, each had one member earn Academic Honor Roll standing.

Guido Stubenrauch, a junior co-captain, was the men's cross country honoree.

Junior Susan Parker of Taneytown, a graduate of Francis Scott Key High School, represented the field hockey team for the second year in a row, and sophomore Jennifer Staub was the volleyball player.
