LEWISTON, Maine — Three members of the Bates College women's soccer team have been named to the 2001 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference team. Junior midfielder Krissie Whiting of Contoocook, N.H., was named to the All-NESCAC first team, while senior forward Kate Dockery of New York, N.Y., and sophomore back Catherine Crosby of Lincoln, Mass., were named to the second team.

Krissie Whiting '03Whiting is named to her fourth All-NESCAC team. She was a second-team selection in soccer in 2000 and is a two-time All-Conference performer in softball. Whiting was fifth on the team with four goals, tops among Bates midfielders, and sixth with eight points, second on the team at her position. Three of her four goals came in wins over conference opponents, including game-winners over Tufts Sept. 29, and Colby Oct. 10. With 30 points in her career, Whiting will be the Bobcats' top returning scorer in 2002.

Kate Dockery '02Dockery

Crosby had two assists in a game twice this season, against St. Joseph's and Trinity. She also scored a goal against the Monks, giving her a career-best four points on the day. Defensively, Crosby was usually called on to mark the opponents' best forward. With Crosby anchoring the backfield, the Bobcats recorded shutouts in eight of their first nine games, including a school-record six-game scoreless streak.

Under head coach Jim Murphy, the Bates College women's soccer team recorded their second-straight 10-win season and third in four years with a 10-4-1 record. They finished tied for third place in the conference with a 5-3-1 record and hosted the first round of the NESCAC tournament.
