ANNVILLE, Pa. – Former women's basketball star Sue Marshall '85 was recently named to the Middle Atlantic Conference All-Century Team as voted on by the fans and announced on Tuesday, March 12.
In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the MAC, the Middle Atlantic Conference is recognizing some of the top student-athletes by holding an online vote to select Century Teams in each sport from different eras. Marshall was one of eight women's basketball players representing the 1912-1988 time period.
Marshall remains one the greatest female athletes to ever don the Orange and Blue. She was the women's basketball program's all-time leading scorer, racking up 1,457 points from 1981 to 1985 – all without the benefit of a three-point line. In 1984-85, she averaged a school-record 20.7 points per game, becoming the first and only Bullet to post a scoring average above 20. In a game against UNC-Greensboro during her senior season, the Clark, N.J., native scored a school-record 42 points. For her career, Marshall averaged 16.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.
Marshall was named American Women's Sports Federation All-America Second Team and All-Mid-Atlantic Region First Team in 1984-85. She was selected to the all-conference team in each of her final three seasons and was named the MAC Player of the Year as a senior.
With Marshall leading the way, Gettysburg earned bids to the NCAA Division III Tournament in both 1984 and 1985. The team won a school-record 22 games in 1983-84 and claimed the MAC Southern Division title in 1984-85.
Marshall was also a standout on the softball diamond during the spring. At the plate, she logged a .343 batting average with 54 RBI, while on the mound she was nearly untouchable, going 26-6 with a school-record low 0.89 ERA during her career.
Gettysburg was a member of the MAC for nearly 80 years prior to joining the Centennial Conference in 1993.
