2018 AHCA Women's All-Americans released

Compiled by D3hockey.com staff --

ADRIAN, Mich. — The 2018 AHCA/CCM Division III Women's All-Americans were unveiled at the Frozen Four banquet in Northfield, Vermont on Thursday night.

Spearheading this year's recipients were delegations from all four Frozen Four teams as ten of the 24 players awarded All-American honors will be in action this weekend. Plattsburgh State, Adrian, and Norwich led the list among the programs with the most players honored at three players apiece. Hamline, UW-River Falls, Elmira, and Gustavus Adolphus each had two players selected. 

Another remarkable trend is the number of repeat first team All-Americans. Plattsburgh's Melissa Sheeran is now a three-time first team All-American, while Hamilton goalie Sam Walther, Gustavus Adolphus goalie Amanda DiNella, Adrian defender Kelly O'Sullivan, and Norwich defender Kim Tiberi all repeat as members of their respective first teams. 

Lake Forest's Kayla Griffith and Alex Toupal also reprise roles on the All-America lists as three time All-Americans on this year's second team, and first team pick Carly Moran of UW-River Falls also makes a second All-American appearance. Adrian freshman Kate Turner holds the distinction of being the only rookie selected.
