The American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) is once again recognizing varsity ice hockey players who compiled exceptional results in the classroom during the 2020-21 season with the announcement of the fifth annual “Krampade All-American Scholars.” Due to the effects of Covid-19, the AHCA adopted revised criteria for this year’s honorees. To qualify, a student-athlete must have attained a 3.6 GPA for each semester, regardless of whether the school’s hockey team was able to play this season or not.

“We made a decision to include all hockey players who met the academic standard, whether their team was allowed to play or not,” said AHCA executive director Joe Bertagna. “Those who were denied a chance to compete have already been disadvantaged and we did not want to add to their situation.”

Normally, a student-athlete is required to participate in a minimum of 40% of a team’s games. The honor is open to any program who is a member of the AHCA.

Gustavus women’s hockey players recognized include Stephanie Anderson, Clara Billings, Sophia Coltvet, Emilia Helms-Leslie, Katie McCoy, Molly McHugh, Serena Monson, Heather Olinger, Emily Olson, Brooke Power, Kristina Press, Grace Schulte, Alexa Steffl, and Kayla Vrieze.
