Payne named All-East Region First Team

PLATTSBURGH — Already the owner of SUNYAC Player of the Year as well as All-SUNYAC First Team laurels, Plattsburgh State women’s basketball senior Kathleen Payne has successfully parlayed her record-setting senior campaign into yet another postseason accolade.

The Goshen product was named to the All-East Region First Team for the second consecutive season.

The 2013-14 season capped off what turned out to be the best individual career in the history of Plattsburgh State women’s basketball. Payne became the program’s all-time leading scorer (1,722 points) and secured the most career rebounds in school history (759).

Payne went on to make even more revisions to the Plattsburgh State record book by breaking her own single-season scoring record. Her 569 points during the Cardinals’ historic 2013-14 campaign were 93 more than she racked up during her sophomore season and marked the first time any Plattsburgh women’s basketball player had amassed 500 or more points in a season.

The Cardinals posted a record of 23-6, captured SUNYAC regular season and tournament championships for the first time and made their first appearance in the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Tournament.
