Mattapoisett, Mass., senior captain collects honors for second straight year 

EASTON, Mass. (April 28, 2014) – Stonehill College senior captain Kaitlyn Martin (Mattapoisett, Mass./Medway) was recognized with a spot on the 2014 Northeast-10 Conference Tournament All-Championship Team for her efforts as the Skyhawks advanced to the semifinal round last week. The announcement was made following the NE-10 Championship match won by Merrimack College on Sunday in North Andover, Mass.

Martin, who earns All-Championship Team honors for the second-straight year, was a combined 2-1 in her matches in Stonehill's two tournament contests last week. She and her doubles partner, sophomore Bailey Paradiso (Birmingham, Mich./Marian), split their matches at No. 1 doubles and Martin won her lone completed match at No. 5 singles. Martin was a double-winner in Wednesday's first round win over Bentley (5-0) as she and Paradiso keyed a sweep of the three doubles matches for the Skyhawks with their 8-1 win at the top flight. Martin added a 6-2, 6-2 singles win over Melanie Scott that provided the Skyhawks with the deciding point. She also led her match in the first set (4-3) at Adelphi University in Friday's semifinal setback (5-1) when play was halted with the Panthers earning the deciding point.

Martin, a four-time All-Northeast-10 performer over her career at Stonehill, was a first team performer for the Skyhawks this season for the second straight year at No. 5 singles. She posted a combined 40-17 record in singles and doubles play, including a 21-6 singles mark while winning all 12 matches in NE-10 play. She also posted a 19-11 doubles clip, including 7-7 with Paradiso at No. 1. Martin was named the NE-10 Player of the Week on September 24 for the third time in her career.

Martin, who earned third team All-NE-10 honors at No. 5 singles as a freshman along with second team honors at No. 2 doubles, finished her career with a combined record of 134-44 (.753) in singles and doubles play over her four year career at Stonehill. She is 67-19 (.779) in singles play during her career, including a 39-2 (.951) record in NE-10 matches with 29-straight regular season Conference singles wins dating back to her freshman year. Martin has also posted a 67-25 (.728) career doubles record, including a 30-7 (.810) clip in Conference play. In addition to her four career All-Conference awards, Martin has been named to the NE-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll four semesters and the Athletic Director's Honor Roll once. She also earned NE-10 All-Championship team honors in helping lead the Skyhawks to the 2013 NE-10 Championship and was an NE-10 All-Rookie Team selection as a freshman.

Stonehill, ranked ninth in the most recent Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division II East Regional rankings, capped its season with a 17-7 record overall, including 10-2 in Northeast-10 play. The Skyhawks placed five singles players on the All-Northeast-10 Conference teams and earned their NE-10 record matching 15th NE-10 Tournament appearance.
