William Smith College first-year forward Mia LaPlante was named the United Collegiate Hockey Conference Women’s North Rookie of the Week.
LaPlante led William Smith with a goal and an assist against Amherst last weekend. On Saturday, she scored her team-leading fifth goal of the season, cleaning up a rebound in front of the goal. The next day, LaPlante forced a turnover at the blue line and fired a shot on goal. Senior Gina Scibetta banked home the rebound. LaPlante has played in all 13 games this season. She has eight points on five goals and three assists.
William Smith is 7-6-0 on the season and will return to the ice Tuesday, Jan. 14, at Cortland. The Herons final non-conference contest is scheduled to begin at noon.
