MARYMOUNT ALL-DECADE TEAMS: With no fall sports results to post on its athletic Website, Marymount University has produced a number of all-decade teams from the 2010 to 2020 time frame in a format to display on that site and fill an otherwise empty void this fall.

 So far, Marymount has produced five all-decade teams for the men’s and women’s soccer and cross country programs and women’s volleyball. Those are all the fall teams at the Division III college.

Those teams are not playing right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are a handful of athletes for each team. The display includes action photos of those chosen along with statistics about the athletes, all-conference honors and related information.

Two of the biggest women’s volleyball standouts on the all-decade team are Theresa Buscemi and Caroline Hanson.

From 2016 to 2020 Buscemi had 1,836 digs, 351 assists, 181 aces and was an all-Atlantic East Conference selection.

From 2015 to 2019, Hanson had 1,471 assists, 1,067 digs, 958 kills, 199 blocks and 171 aces. She was the Atlantic East Conference Player of the Year in 2018.
