Lady Railsplitters Place Two On All-South Atlantic Conference Teams

ROCK HILL, SC -- The South Atlantic Conference released the 2012 regular season basketball awards on Thursday afternoon. Dayshalee Salaman grabbed First Team All-SAC honors while Lauren Cochran was named Second Team All-SAC.

Salaman was the backcourt leader of a Lady Railsplitters squad that finished with a 14-13 overall mark. She led the South Atlantic Conference in points per contest at 20.7 and assists per game at 4.5. Salaman also averaged 5.3 rebounds a contest and led the team in minutes at 32.6 per game.

Senior Lauren Cochran garnered Second Team honors for her work throughout the 2012 season. Cochran averaged 15.4 points a game, which ranks sixth in the conference, and pulled in 7.2 rebounds per contest. She also led the conference in blocked shots at 2.27 per game and finished second in field goal percentage, as she finished shooting 59 percent from the field.

The Lady Railsplitters season came to a halt last night as they fell in the opening round of the 2012 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament to Catawba College. They will now look forward to the 2012-2013 without the presence of these two All-SAC honorees.
