HAMDEN, Conn. - Sophomore Sarah Lefort of the Boston University women’s ice hockey team was named an American Hockey Coaches Association Second-Team All-American, as announced on Thursday night at the Frozen Four championship banquet.
Lefort (Ormstown, Que.) is the second Terrier in program history to earn All-America honors; Catherine Ward (’11) was a second-team selection in 2011. The honor caps a career campaign for Lefort, who leads the nation with 32 goals and is fifth in the country with 55 points. She is the only skater in the nation who has 30 or more markers and she matched Jenn Wakefield’s (’12) program record for goals in a season.
A top-10 finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, Lefort will finish the year with an NCAA-best eight game-winning goals; the next closest skater has six entering this weekend's Frozen Four. She was unanimously selected as the Hockey East Player of the Year after she led the league with 19 goals, 17 assists and 36 points in 21 conference contests. Lefort was the only Hockey East player to earn an All-America accolade this year.
