Coker, Mattison Earn Academic Honors

Kelly Coker and Jocelyn Mattison

URI senior Kelly Coker and junior Jocelyn Mattison were named to the 2013 Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference Softball Team on May 7. The Rhody captains were two of 10 players selected in voting among the league’s sports information directors. This is the second straight season Coker has earned the honor, and the first time on the team for Mattison.

Coker, who has a cumulative grade-point average of 3.72 as a nursing major, finished her career as one of the most decorated players in program history. She ranks in URI’s all-time top 10 in hits, home runs, runs batted in, walks, stolen bases, sacrifice hits, and runs scored. She also was one of 11 players named to the Capital One COSIDA Academic All-District Team for District I, which covers schools in all New England states plus New York. Coker also was URI’s pick for the 2013 Rhode Island Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women Distinguished Athlete of the Year, and she is one of 10 national finalists for the Senior CLASS Award for Softball.

Mattison has a cumulative GPA of 3.70 in kinesiology. The only player on the team to start every game for the last three seasons, she has started 154 consecutive games to start her career. This season, she had a career-high 35 hits, the third-most on the team. She also had a team-high four home runs and was second on the team with 23 runs scored and 17 batted in. Mattison ranks eighth in school history in fielding percentage at .974, and this season became just the third player in Rhode Island history to record more than 800 career putouts, finishing the year with 847.
