Dickinson's Martin 2-for-2 when game is on the line


Dickinson junior Julie Martin (Garrison Forest) couldn't have picked more opportune moments for her first two goals of the field hockey season.

The first was the game-winner in a 2-1 victory over Muhlenberg. Two days later, she scored her second, again the game-winner as Dickinson edged Elizabethtown, 2-1, to raise its winning streak to five and its overall record to 6-2.

* In eight games, sophomore goalie Kristin Butler (Annapolis) has 60 saves while allowing 21 goals for 4-4 Colgate.


Middle blocker Amy Strasbaugh (Dundalk) has 17 digs, eight kills and six blocks for 5-2 Jacksonville. A marine biology major, she received the athletic department's Community Service Award for her work with Student-Athletes Care for Kids program.

* American University junior Sherita Hall (High Point) is second in the Colonial Athletic Association in hitting percentage (.317) and block average (1.32).

* Katherine Joy (LaReine) has 46 kills and 85 digs for 9-9 Georgetown. Last year as a sophomore, she totaled 30 kills.


La Salle's Jen Bostak (Old Mill), a junior third baseman, was named a 1995 co-captain. Last spring she batted .324, was voted to the All-Midwestern Collegiate Conference first team and made the dean's list with a 3.48 grade-point average in her mathematics major.

"Jen has exhibited leadership qualities ever since she arrived at La Salle," said coach Ray Perri. "Even though she's only a junior, I'm sure she'll be an inspirational captain."
