Three members of the Middlebury College women's hockey team were honored today when the NESCAC announced its all-league teams. Seniors Molly Vitt (Kenilworth, Ill.) and Randi Dumont (Greene, Maine) were named to the first-team, while senior Annmarie Cellino (W. Seneca, N.Y.) earned second-team honors. The three helped lead the Panthers to a 17-3-4 record as they head to the NESCAC Championship weekend at Amherst this weekend.

Vitt earns first-team honors after leading the Panthers with 28 points, four power play and three game-winning goals this season. The senior is second on the team with 10 goals in '08-'09, while tying for the team-lead with 18 assists. Her 1.22 points/game place her fourth in the NESCAC, while her .78 assists/game is good for second place. Vitt has a point in all but seven games this season, including a five-point game with four assists at Bowdoin. She now owns 26 goals and 43 assists for 69 points in 98 career games.

Dumont has been the anchor of a Middlebury defense that has allowed just 1.88 goals/game this season, second in the league. The senior scored a goal against Trinity this season, while dishing out 13 helpers for 14 points. She earned two assists in a 5-4 overtime win over Elmira back on January 3rd. The senior has now played in 106 games, with 19 goals and 30 assists for 49 points.

Cellino earns All-NESCAC honors for the fourth time in four years at Middlebury. The former NESCAC Rookie of the Year earned Player of the Year honors a year ago. This season, Cellino is third in the league with .74 assists/game, tying Vitt for the team-lead with 18. She has scored nine goals with 27 points in '08-'09, including a four-point game at Wesleyan.
