Robson Becomes First Woman to Earn NEHWA Unsung Hero Award

2014 New England Hockey Writers Association Division I All-Stars & Awards Release


BOSTON, Mass. – Brown women's hockey junior Sarah Robson (Mississauga, Ontario) has been named the Joe Tomasello Award Unsung Hero by the New England Hockey Writers Association, becoming the first female to do so. Robson's historical accolade puts her alongside some of the best men's college hockey players in the country, including back-to-back Leonard Fowle Award winner Johnny Gaudreau of Boston College, the nation's Most Valuable Player as voted by the NEHWA.

Consistently Brown's top scoring threat, Robson quietly led the Bears in points (14) and assists (nine) while tying for third on the team with five goals. She recorded three multiple-point games, including two assists in a 4-3 loss to Vermont on Nov. 26 and a goal and an assist during a 3-3 tie at Dartmouth on Jan. 11. She then registered a goal and an assist, highlighted by Brown's lone penalty shot goal of the season, in a 3-0 route of Rensselaer on Feb. 7.

Robson will be honored along with the rest of the all-stars and award winners on Wednesday, April 16 at the Prince Restaurant in Saugus, Mass., at 6 p.m. All coaches, student-athletes, family members and friends are encouraged to attend Wednesday's banquet.
