Guilford (N.C.) College junior Lily Colley of Wells was named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference player of the week on April 16. Colley scored 14 goals with seven assists during a 3-0 week as the Quakers extended their school-record winning streak to 12, including a four-goal, three-assist effort in a key ODAC win against Shenandoah on April 13.

The Quakers finished their regular season last Saturday with their 14th straight win, snapping a 24-game losing streak to Washington and Lee. At 15-1 overall and 10-0 in the ODAC, the Quakers received a bye into the semifinals. Colley has 71 goals with a school-record 39 assists.

Colley's twin sister, Becca, has 30 goals and 10 assists.

Thomas College seniors Ceara DiBiase of Westbrook and Jasmine Ryan of Berwick (Noble) led the Terriers to a 12-11 win Sunday against New England College. Thomas (10-4, 5-1) wrapped up the No. 2 seed for the upcoming North Atlantic Conference playoffs. DiBiase scored three goals, including the winner with 2:24 left in the game to break an 11-11 tie. First-year keeper Brittany Fox of Lovell (Fryeburg Academy) made nine saves in the win and junior Jillian Lambert of Dayton (Thornton Academy) scored two goals.

In another NAC playoff matchup, No. 3 Colby-Sawyer College, featuring Sara Berry of Bowdoinham (Mt. Ararat) will host No. 6 Husson. Berry (11 goals, 1 assist) scored when the two teams met recently. Maryalice Gurnee of South Portland has two goals this season for Colby-Sawyer (7-8, 4-2 in NAC). Husson (3-9, 1-5) features first-year midfielder Alissa Fallon of Kennebunk (13 goals, 7 assists) and first-year attack Anna Wolterbeek of Wells (Lewiston) who has four goals and three assists.


Wheaton College freshmen Amanda Peterson of Gray-New Gloucester and Emily Rand of Falmouth have been key members of the Lyons' 400 relay team. Wheaton is ranked 19th in the NCAA Division III track & field poll.

Individually, Peterson was 14th in the 100-meter dash and Rand was 17th in the 200 dash at last weekend's Eric Loeschner Memorial Meet, where Wheaton placed third.

During the men's meet, Wheaton senior Sam Fear of Bath (North Yarmouth Academy) placed third in the high jump, clearing 6-2, and was part of an 11th-place 400 relay that included freshman Sam Miklovich of Gray-New Gloucester.


William Smith College junior Katie Paige of Brunswick (North Yarmouth Academy) and the rest of the Herons' varsity eight were named the Liberty League boat of the week.

Ranked fourth in the latest CRCA/USRowing poll, the team beat all five of its Division III opponents on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, Mass., just 0.93 second behind Holy Cross on Saturday and winning its Sunday race.
