Five Women's Icers Named All-Ivy

March 7, 2003

Five members of the Brown women's hockey team were named to the 2002-03 All-Ivy team. Senior defender Cassie Turner (Campbellford, ONT) and senior goalkeeper Pam Dreyer (Eagle River, AK) were named Second Team All-Ivy, while senior Kim Insalaco (Rochester, NY), sophomore Jessica Link (Clifton Park, NY) and freshman Karen Thatcher received Honorable Mentions.

Turner, the backbone of the Bears' defense, has also stepped up offensively during her senior campaign. In 25 games, the co-captain has recorded seven goals, three more then her previous three-year total of four. This marks the third straight year Turner has earned All-Ivy status.

Dreyer, who has played the majority of minutes between the pipes this season, has recorded 555 saves with a .907 save percentage and a 2.32 gaa. For her career, Dreyer has 1642 saves, a .912 save percentage, a 1.80 gaa and a 38-21-8 record. She was named Second Team All-Ivy in 2000-01 as well.

Insalaco currently ranks ninth on Brown's all-time scoring list with 42 goals and 80 assists for 122 points. This season she has recorded six goals and a team-leading 21 assists for 27 points. The co-captain has come on strong as of late, tallying 14 points in the last six games. Insalaco earned Second Team All-Ivy recognition in 2000-01.

After just two seasons of play, Link already ranks tied for 24th place on the Bears' all-time scoring list with 80 points. Link has led Brown in scoring all season and ranks fourth in the ECAC with 1.75 points per game. She has 19 goals and 19 assists for 38 points. As a freshman last season, Link earned Second Team All-Ivy honors.

Thatcher is second for Brown with 30 points on the season. Her ten goals ties her for third on the team and her 20 assists are second on the team. She is second in scoring in the ECAC among rookies and was named the ECAC Rookie of the Week last week after leading Brown to a weekend sweep over Colgate and Cornell with six points.
