HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Lauren Coleman, Callie Alford, Ashley Christy and Kaitlyn Medlam were the four Georgia State student-athletes named to 2012 All-CAA teams, announced at the conference awards banquet Tuesday night.

First baseman Coleman earned a spot on the All-CAA first and All-Rookie teams after leading the Panthers with a .313 batting average and a .421 on-base percentage. A native of Marietta, Ga., Coleman started 48 of 52 games at first for GSU, while recording 40 hits, nine doubles, three home runs, 24 walks and 19 RBI.

Alford was honored with spots on the All-CAA second and All-Rookie teams as a catcher. The Conyers, Ga. native paced GSU with 41 RBI, 27 walks, 43 hits, 11 doubles and a .503 slugging percentage. Alford started all 52 games for GSU, getting playing time at catcher, third base and designated player.

Outfielder Christy was also named to the All-CAA second and All-Rookie teams, in part because of her team-high .391 batting average in conference play. A native of Waxhaw, N.C., Christy maintained a .402 on-base percentage, drove in 10 runs, hit a pair of home runs and stole six bases.

The reigning CAA Rookie of the Year, Medlam was selected as a member of the All-CAA second team as a pitcher.
