Three Women's Hockey Players Earn All-American Honors
March 21, 2008
Three members of the Middlebury College women's hockey team were honored when the AHCA (American Hockey Coaches Association) announced its All-American teams. Senior Karen Levin (Morton Grove, Ill.) and junior Annmarie Cellino (W. Seneca, N.Y.) earned first-team honors, while first-year player Anna McNally (St. Paul, Minn.) was named to the second-team. The three helped lead the Panthers to a 19-4-3 season, including its seventh straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.
Cellino earns a spot on the first-team after garnering second-team honors a year ago. The NESCAC Player of the Year led the nation in assists this season with 30, while ranking fifth in points with 43. She scored 13 goals on the year, including three on the power play.
Levin also earns first-team honors on defense for the Panthers. The senior helped anchor a defense that allowed a league-best 1.19 goals/game this season, with the conference's second-ranked penalty kill. She ended the season third on the squad with 17 assists and 24 points to go along with her seven goals.
McNally earns a spot on the second-team after being deemed the NESCAC Rookie of the Year this season. She led the team with 19 goals (6th nationally) this season, while ranking second with 18 assists and 37 points (7th nationally). McNally also led the team with four shorthanded goals (3rd nationally).
