Gustavus Adolphus senior Kelly Crandall (Plymouth, Minn. / Robbinsdale Armstrong) has been named Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Hockey Player of the Week for the week ending Dec. 10, 2006. Crandall, a forward, scored five goals and an assist to lead the third-ranked Gusties to a weekend sweep over Saint Mary’s.

Crandall, who has scored a team-high seven goals this season, scored the first three goals in Friday’s 4-0 win in St. Peter to record her second career hat trick. On Saturday in Winona, Crandall scored Gustavus’ first and fifth goals and assisted on Stefanie Ubl’s
game-winner in the first period as the Gusties completed the sweep with a 5-1 win. Crandall scored a power-play goal each night – the 19th and 20th of her career – to extend her own school record.

Crandall, a communication studies major, is the daughter of Dick and Nancy Crandall of Plymouth and a 2003 graduate of Robbinsdale Armstrong High School.

Gustavus, ranked third in the most recent Division III Women’s Poll, has won seven in a row following a season-opening loss to UW-Stevens Point. The Gusties will close out the fall semester with a game against tenth-ranked UW-River Falls Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 7:00 p.m. at Don Roberts Ice Rink in St. Peter.
