As Colby was going to press, Cappelloni, a 6-1 forward, had been named:
• an NCAA State Farm Coaches’ All-America honorable mention pick, one of only two NESCAC players selected,
• a D3hoops.com All-Northeast Region Team, second-team choice,
• a New England Women’s Basketball Association and the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) all-star,
• a NESCAC first-team selection, and a Maine Women’s Basketball Coaches
Association first-team pick.
Cappelloni finished her Colby career with 1,229 points to rank sixth all-time in program history. She had 646 rebounds, 138 assists, and set Colby records for three-point field goals made in a career (186) and in a single-season (63 in her senior year). She also finished fourth in NESCAC free-throw shooting (.790) this year.
An English major, Cappelloni is modest about her individual accomplishments on the court. She pointed out that all of the players, including co-captains Samantha Allen ’10 and Rachel Mack ’11, prided themselves on defense, rebounding, and court position. “You can always control those things,” she said. “It’s an effort thing.”
