ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Emma Crocker ’21 of the No. 3-nationally ranked Elmira College women’s ice hockey team was tabbed the United Collegiate Hockey Conference (UCHC) North Division Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon after guiding the Purple Gold to a 2-0-0 start to the season.
Crocker flew out of the gates to open the 2019-20 campaign. In Elmira’s 12-0 demolition of Wilkes University in the season opener, the junior forward registered a career-best six points on two goals and four assists. Her six-point outing tied her for fourth in program single-game history. She followed up her career day with a second multi-point outing against King’s College (Pa.). The Abington, Massachusetts, native potted one power-play goal and added a pair of assists in a 6-0 shutout victory.
At the start of her breakout campaign, Crocker is first in the nation in points per game (4.50) and assists per game (3.00), tied for third in goals per game (1.50), tied for fifth in power-play goals (2), and is tied for fifth in game-winning goals (1).
Crocker and the No. 3-ranked Soaring Eagles will put their unblemished record on the line on Saturday, November 16, when they welcome the Herons of William Smith College to the Murray Athletic Center for a rematch of the 2019 UCHC title game. The contest is scheduled for a 3:00 p.m. start as part of the 38th annual Athletics Alumni Weekend.
