ELLEN D. TREMPER '88
Softball, Field Hockey
One of the truly amazing success stories in Greyhound history, ELLEN TREMPER made an impact in two sports. She was a two-time all-New England field hockey player at midfield for Coach Joyce LaBonte and was a CFHCA all-America as a senior.
She was the primary reason for the field hockey team's development into a regional power. The Hounds won just one game in her freshman season, however, the next three seasons were post-season contenders. She scored 14 goals with nine assists in her career (as a midfielder) for 37 points. She led the team in scoring as a senior with 7-4--18.
She played in the CFHCA national all-star game in Virginia Beach, VA following her junior year and the New England all-star game at Holy Cross College after her senior season.
As a softball player, she and fellow Hall of Famer Barbie Barrett '88 co-led the nation in batting (.505) as freshmen giving rise to the program as a regional and conference power. She finished her career with a .361 batting mark with 146 hits (second at graduation). She was named all-Northeast-10 Conference twice (1985, 87) and led the team to a 74-53 mark in her four years.
While at the College she was named to the Athletics Department Honor Roll (1986-88), won the Andrew Laska Award as the female athlete-of-the-year (1985, 86), won the Rev. Alfred R. Berthiaume, A.A. Memorial Award (above and beyond) (1987), won the Rev. Armand Desautels, A.A. Memorial Award (premier senior student-athlete) (1988). She was the Most Valuable Player for field hockey (1984, 85, 86, 87) and all-New England in softball (1985, 86, 87).
