WATERVILLE, Maine – Colby College senior guard/forward Alison Cappelloni (Sudbury, Mass.) was named an NCAA State Farm Coaches' All-America Team honorable mention selection on Friday.

The main All-America team features the top 10 players selected by a vote of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) selection committee. The committee is comprised of one representative from each of the eight geographical regions and a chairperson.

Cappelloni was one of 30 players chosen as an honorable mention selection. She was one of only two New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) players named among the 40 honored. Amherst College's Caroline Stedman was named to the main All-America team.

Cappelloni has now been honored by six different organizations since Colby ended the season at 24-5 and made the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time. She has been named to the second team on the All-Northeast Region Team, the New England Women's Basketball Association (NEWBA), and the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). She was a NESCAC First Team selection, and a Maine Women's Basketball Coaches Association (MWBCA) First Team pick.

Cappelloni finished her career with 1,229 points to rank sixth all-time in program history and had 646 rebounds and 138 assists. Cappelloni holds Colby records for 3-point field goals made in a career (186) and single-season 3-point field goals (63 this year).

In the latest NESCAC statistics, Cappelloni is the only player in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding, and 3-point field goal percentage. She also finished fourth in league free throw shooting (.790).
