Jen Peloquin of Narrowsburg

Three All-Stars Tabbed
From Narrowsburg

Compiled by Rob Potter
July 18, 2000 – The final Western Sullivan league softball all-stars were chosen last month by WSL coaches.
We continue our series with a look at the three Narrowsburg selections, and hope to conclude it on Friday with a profile of Livingston Manor’s Amanda Irwin.
Manor coach Gail Denman has been away and unavailable for comment.

Stacy Hert • HM • outfield • JR: Hert, who played primarily in left field, posted a .275 batting average.
Narrowsburg coach Lionel Billard praised Hert for her ability to not only catch the fly balls hit her way but also back up third base.
“She is a great outfielder with a lot of speed,” Billard said. “I think her speed and ability to back up throws at third base helped her earn a spot on the honorable mention team.”
Kim Jay • HM • shortstop • FR: As Narrowsburg coach Lionel Billard noted, Jay was “an exceptional ninth-grader.”
“Even though she was a freshman, people responded to her outstanding play,” said Billard. “She was a quiet player and a leader.”
Jay batted .412 in her first varsity season.
“She played every game and batted very well,” Billard added. “She was an all-around player.”
Jen Peloquin • FT • outfield • SR: Peloquin, who was a member of the Lady Indian varsity team for three years, hit a team-best .415 during the 2000 season.
Billard noted that as an experienced player, Peloquin was a real team leader.
“She helped everyone’s spirits and kept people motivated,” Billard said. “She batted well and played great in the outfield.”
“Jen was an all-around player and someone we will really miss next season,” he added.
