Tamsin named to all-star team

The season may be over, but the accolades continue to accumulate for sophomore outfielder Mike Tamsin.

The slugger was named to the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) All-New England Division 1 All-Star team June 22. This comes after being named to the American Baseball Coaches Association Northeast Region first team and to the All-Colonial Athletic Association second team for the second season in a row.

Tamsin, who mostly batted third for the Huskies while splitting time between leftfield and first base, led the team with an impressive .366 batting average in 2007.

He also led the team in hits (63), on-base percentage (.446), tied for the team lead with 39 runs scored, hit eight home runs and was second on the team with 40 RBI.

Tamsin displayed a superb eye at the plate as well, leading Northeastern with a 1.41 walk-to-strikeout ratio.

As a member of the All-New England Division 1 All-Star team, Tamsin will have the opportunity to play in the NEIBA All-Star Game at Fenway Park July 22.

Swimming ‘ diving team adds new recruits

Northeastern swimming ‘ diving team head coach Roy Coates announced eight recruits last week.

“The [recruiting] class we have [this year] will add to our talent and depth,” he said.

This year’s class will help replace several seniors who graduated, as well as strengthen the Huskies in areas where they are already strong.

Carolyn Marsh joins the Huskies from Beverly Hills, Mich., where she attended Birmingham Groves High School.

Marsh competes in both the 100- and 200-meter backstroke and individual medley events. Coates said she should help compensate for the loss of captain Tarah Rodriguez, who graduated in May.

Also joining the Huskies will be Sarah Martin, from Central Catholic High School in Haverhill.

She should help compensate for the loss of recent graduate Katy Turner, who competed in the 100-meter butterfly, Coates said. She can also compete in the 50-and 100-meter freestyle.

“She will be our second top sprinter next to [sophomore] Katy Fugge,” Coates said.

Emily Hanson joins the Huskies from Georgetown and attended Beverly High School. She will compete in the butterfly for the Huskies.

“She is not nearly as fast as Katy [Turner] but hasn’t come close to getting to her top speed yet,” Coates said.

Lauren Williams comes to Northeastern from Denville, N.J., after graduating from Morris Knolls High School.

Coates said she will add much needed talent and depth to the Huskies’ middle distance events.

Bryn Coan, out of Mercy High School in Bloomfield Village, Mich., will replace recent graduate Sarah Underwood in the freestyle events, Coates said.

Molly Curran joins the Huskies from Beverly, where she attended Beverly High School. She will compete in the individual medley and breastroke and will “definitely score” in those events, Coates said.

Kerry Lynch comes to Northeastern from Holden and attended Worcester Academy. She will be an asset to the freestyle corps, Coates said.

Rounding out the Huskies’ 2007 recruiting class is diver Emily Brandt from Lockport, N.Y. She attended Lockport High School.

“Emily will add to the depth of the diving corps, [as we] didn’t lose anyone [from last season],” Coates said.

Northeastern, which has finished sixth in both of its first two seasons in the Colonial Athletic Association, will have its first dual meet of the 2007-08 season Oct. 5 against Boston College at Barletta Natorium.
