24 Herons Named To UCHC All-Academic Team


The William Smith College ice hockey team placed a program-record and league-best 24 student-athletes on the 2020-21 United Collegiate Hockey Conference All-Academic team. The previous high was 17 in 2019-20.

To be eligible, a player must spend a minimum of one academic year at her present institution, while maintaining a minimum 3.2 cumulative grade point average based on their course load for the 2020-21 academic year.

The following Herons earned a spot on the team:

Kennedy, Nottke, Weiss and Williams earned all-academic honors for the fourth straight year. They are William Smith’s first four-time All-Academic selections. Coburn, Diffley, Duffey, Franciszkowicz, Gong, Jackson and Mings, were named to the team for the second straight year.

While William Smith did not have a formal 2020-21 season, the Herons continued their workouts on the ice and in the weight room throughout the year. The team held an intersquad scrimmage in early March.
