Cole named BCANY women's Coach of the Year


During the season, Marshall earned the first SUNYAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week award of her career and followed that up with an ECAC Division III Upstate Player of the Year Accolade after a particularly strong two-game stretch in December. During that span, Marshall averaged 20 points and four assists per game while shooting 50 percent from the field in a pair of Plattsburgh State victories over conference foes Fredonia State and Buffalo State.


TOWSON, Md. — Ashley Marshall of the Plattsburgh State softball team has been selected to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America Division III Softball Team with a spot on the Second Team.

Marshall becomes the first Plattsburgh State softball player to be honored as a Capital One Academic All-American. She is the only State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) representative on this year’s team and is one of seven pitchers recognized in Division III.

A native of Malone, Marshall wrapped up her Cardinal career with a dominant senior campaign where she posted a 21-7 record with a 1.76 earned-run average. She finished fourth in the nation with 292 strikeouts and ranked sixth in Division III with an average of 10.2 strikeouts per seven innings. She has been named SUNYAC Pitcher of the Year twice and was a National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Second Team All-American in 2012.

With a remarkable 83-24 career record, Marshall has single-handedly rewritten the Cardinal record book, ending her career as the owner of 13 Plattsburgh State pitching records. In addition to a tie for most appearances (38) in a single-season, she is the single-season leader in shutouts (11), strikeouts (292) and wins (25). Marshall is also the all-time leader in appearances (135), games started (89), complete games (77), shutouts (30), innings pitched (719.2), wins (83), strikeouts (996), winning percentage (.775) and ERA (1.50).

In addition to her dominance in the circle, Marshall has a 3.71 grade-point average and is part of the combined program that allows students to complete a B.S. in Childhood Education and a M.S. Ed. in Special Education in five years.
