Brown Places 19 on 2012-2013 ECAC Hockey Women's All-Academic Team

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND – The Brown women's ice hockey team put forth an impressive academic showing during the 2012-2013 season, placing 19 student-athletes on the ECAC Hockey All-Academic team. Additionally, the squad was one of only two women's programs in the league to earn a perfect NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR), as the Bears and the Colgate Raiders each posted scores of 1,000. Both the men's and women's ice hockey programs at Brown netted perfect scores, distinguishing the university as the only Division I hockey program to accomplish that feat.

This year's ECAC All-Academic team is comprised of 156 student-athletes representing the league's 12 women's programs. Ninety-one of this year's student-athletes were also named to the team last year, 51 have received the honor for the last three seasons and 20 garnered academic recognition for their entire four-year career. Brown led the way with its 19 honorees, followed by Yale with 18, Rensselaer (16), Harvard (15) and Dartmouth (14).

Players are eligible for the All-Academic team if they earn a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.00 on a 4.00 scale or have a GPA over 3.00 for the past three semesters.
