College Hockey America Names 102 to All-Academic Team
2018-19 was another strong year of academics for the six College Hockey America teams as 102 student-athletes were named to the CHA All-Academic Team. Additionally, 14 individuals had 4.0 GPAs during the academic year, one shy of the record 15 set last season.
Five student-athletes were named Student-Athletes of the Year for at least a second-consecutive season, led by four-time recipient Morgan Stacey of Mercyhurst. Joining Stacey are three-time honorees Kirsten Martin (LU) and Molly Blasen (MU), and two-time Student-Athletes of the Year Sierra Burt (LU), Sarah McDonnell (MU), and Lexi Templeman (RMU).
In addition to those five, student-athletes from Lindenwood, Mercyhurst, Penn State, and Robert Morris filled out the 14-name list. Annika Asplundh and Jada Burke were the additional representatives from Lindenwood, Maggie Knott and Alexa Vasko from Mercyhurst, Kelsey Crow from Penn State, and Jaycee Gebhard, Emilie Harley, and Courtney Kollman from Robert Morris.
Each team had double-digit representatives with Robert Morris topping all with 19 names on the All-Academic Team. Mercyhurst, Penn State, and RIT followed the Colonials with 17 apiece, and both Syracuse and Lindenwood placed 16 on the list.
