EDISON, N.J. - The Marist women's basketball team had a league-high five members named to All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) teams on Monday. While the Red Foxes did not have anyone on the First Team, and therefore eligible for MAAC Player of the Year, Casey Dulin (Milford, Conn) and Elizabeth Beynnon (Burlington, Vt.) were selected to the
Second Team while Leanne Ockenden (Syracuse, N.Y) and Emma O'Connor (Lynbrook, N.Y.) were on the Third Team. Freshman Sydney Coffey (New Hope, Minn.) was selected to the All-Rookie Team and is now up for MAAC Rookie of the Year which will be announced Thursday night at the MAAC Postseason Awards Show at the Naismith Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

Named to the Preseason All-MAAC Second Team this year, Beynnon has led Marist all season in scoring, averaging in double figures the entire way. She finished the regular season with an average of 12 points per game (PPG) while leading the MAAC with a .507 shooting percentage. She grabbed an average of 4.2 rebounds per game (RPG). Beynnon scored a season-high 22 points against ACC-foe Wake Forest back on Nov. 24 and has reached double figures in all but four games against MAAC opponents. In the past four games, Beynnon has averaged 15.3 PPG while shooting at a .667 (26-39) clip.

Dulin has had a strong junior season, playing numerous roles for the Red Foxes. Named to the All-Tournament Team following last year's MAAC Championships, Dulin finished second on the team with 10.3 PPG while leading with 90 assists. She also was second on the team with 46 steals and grabbed 4.2 RPG. Her .815 free throw percentage ranks fourth in the MAAC. Twice this year Dulin has reached her career-high of 25 points in a game, with the most recent coming against Rider on Feb. 22. That game, plus her 20-point performance against Loyola on Feb. 24 earned Dulin her first career MAAC Player of the Week award.

This is Ockenden's second All-MAAC selection as she was named also to the Third Team following her sophomore season. This year, Ockenden averaged 8.8 PPG and grabbed 3.7 RPG. She led the Red Foxes with 63 steals and was second with 70 assists. She continues to be one of the top three-point shooters in the Marist history. She made 44-178 shots from distance this season and has made 140 three-point shots in her career, sitting seventh all-time in the Marist record books in that category. Ockenden was named the MAAC Player of the Week on Dec. 24 following a game at Yale where she scored 14 points on 7-10 shooting, had seven rebounds and set a career-high with five steals.

O'Connor had a solid season in her first year in the starting lineup, finishing with an average of 9.1 PPG and tying for the team lead with 4.6 RPG. Her .477 shooting percentage was good for fifth in the MAAC. She was also in the top-five on the Red Foxes with 41 assists, 36 steals and 11 blocks. She was named the MAAC Player of the Week on Jan. 28 after scoring a career-high 20 points on the national stage against Manhattan on ESPN3. Earlier in the season, O'Connor scored a then personal best 18 points against #2 UConn and #12 Oklahoma.

Coffey had a spectacular rookie campaign for the Red Foxes, averaging 6.8 PPG and grabbing 2.8 RPG. She was named the MAAC Rookie of the Week on three separate occasions and reached double figures in scoring 11 times this season, including a career-high 16 points on Jan. 20 at Niagara and on Feb. 24 at Loyola. On Nov. 17 versus Princeton, Coffey became the fastest freshman to join the starting lineup under Head Coach Brian Giorgis, doing so in just her third game.   

Marist will next be in action in Springfield, Mass. for the MAAC Championships. The top-seeded Red Foxes will play in the quarterfinals at 1:30 p.m. on Friday against the winner of the preliminary game between #8 Loyola and #9 Manhattan.
