Women's Ice Hockey Places Eight On ECAC East All-Academic Team

WORCESTER, Mass. – Eight members of the 2012-2013 women's ice hockey team have been named to the ECAC East All-Academic team, announced today by interim ECAC commissioner Steve Bamford. This marks the 12th year that the conference has named an All-Academic team. A total of 93 student-athletes representing all 12 ECAC East teams earned the honor based on outstanding performance in the classroom. To be named to the All-Academic team, the student-athlete must have completed at least one academic year, have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.00 on a 4.00 scale, and have competed in at least one-half of her team's contests during the current season (a goaltender must have dressed in at least 33 percent of her team's games).

Senior Meghan Reynolds (Marion, Mass.) recorded the highest grade-point average of any Crusaders and lands on the team for the third straight season. Fellow classmate Caroline English (Dorchester, Mass.) was also recognized for the third straight year. Juniors Amanda Gallagher (Park Ridge, Ill.) and Emily Sullivan (Arlington, Mass.) each earned the honor for the second time and while senior Alex Campione (Townsend, Mass.) and sophomores Krista Manzanares (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.), Kate Reilly (Natick, Mass.) and Kylee Sullivan (Arlington, Mass.) made the team for the first time.

Holy Cross finished the 2012-2013 season with a record of 16-6-5 overall, going 9-4-5 in the ECAC East.
