Naas, a junior right-hander and the team's Most Valuable Player, averaged 4.5 strikeouts per seven innings to place 18th in that department.

The three-time Middle Atlantic Conference All-Star struck out 59 batters in 91 innings as she won 11 times in 13 decisions. Her 1.00 ERA was instrumental in the team's final 1.74 earned run average, good for 24th in Division III.

Western Maryland, which won its first MAC title in 1993, endedup 17th in triples after slugging 12 three-baggers in 21 games for an average of 0.57 per contest.

The Green Terrors' 15-6 record left them in a tie for 21st place in winning percentage at .714.

Sophomore Jerry Resh of Hagerstown (Williamsport High), was the lone Western Maryland representative in the Division III baseball statistics.

The Green Terror shortstop wound up 18th in the toughest to strike out category, going down just three times in 79 at-bats.

Resh also led the 10-13 Green Terrors in batting (.392), hits (31) and RBI (16) to earn team Offensive Player of the Year and Most Valuable Players honors, in addition to MAC All-Star recognition.
