Westover (Flinton, Pa. /Faith Tabernacle) was a co-recipient of this award in 2012, Preseason Player of the Year this season, and is now a four-time all-conference selection.  She batted .422 this past season and was a key component in the Mounties’ run to a runner-up finish in the AMCC tournament.  She led the league in doubles (16) and hits (54) and ranked second in RBI’s (37) while providing a steady glove at the second base position. Off the field, Westover was inducted into the Chi Alpha Sigma Student-Athlete Honor Society which recognizes academic performance, leadership and character. The business administration major also made the Academic All-Conference team.

Sammarco (Patton, Pa. /Bishop Carroll) was tabbed Second Team All-Conference at third base. This is her third all-conference selection, as the senior hit .429 while leading the team and entire conference in runs with 40. She also led the team and was third in the conference with a .507 on-base percentage. She added 51 hits, 30 RBI’s and 12 doubles. Sammarco also excels in the classroom as she was named to the Academic All-Conference team, and concludes her fantastic two-sport career for Mount Aloysius after leading the hoops squad to the AMCC Tournament final. For all her efforts, Sammarco was named the 2013-2014 Mount Aloysius Female Athlete of the Year.
