All Three Seniors Honored for Fourth Time

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale had 16 student-athletes named to the ECAC Hockey All-Academic team, including all three members of the Class of 2010. Defenseman Alyssa Clarke (Donkin, N.S.), forward Berit Johnson (Wayzata, Minn.) and forward Caroline Murphy (Woodstock, Conn.) were each honored for the fourth time.

Yale had the second-highest number of honorees in the 12-team league. Only Harvard (18) had more. Dartmouth and RPI tied for third with 15 honorees each.
