Bray Ketchum, Helen Resor Named Second Team All-Ivy League

Feb. 26, 2009

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Sophomore forward Bray Ketchum (Greenwich, Conn.) and senior defenseman Helen Resor (Greenwich, Conn.) were named second team All-Ivy League Thursday after a vote by the league's coaches.

Ketchum, who tied for the team lead in goals with 13 and was second in points with 23, had a team-high six goals and nine points in the 10 games against Ivy League opponents. Ketchum finished the season on a roll, with more goals (six) in the final 11 games than any other Bulldog. She also led the team in scoring in ECAC Hockey games, as all 13 of her goals came in conference play. With 22 goals at the halfway point of her career, she is already 23rd all-time at Yale and on pace to finish in the top six.

Prior to Yale, Ketchum played for Greenwich Academy and the Connecticut Stars. She was a four-time USA Hockey player development camp selection.

Resor, who is among the nominees for the Kazmaier Award as the top women's college hockey player in the country, led the team in assists with 14 and was third in points with 21. She was also second on the team in points in Ivy League games (3-5-8). Resor is currently sixth nationally in scoring by a defenseman (7-14-21 in 28 games). Her 48 career assists place her tied for ninth on Yale's all-time list in that category, and she is also tied for 12th in career points (75) and tied for 20th in career goals (27). Along with Yale men's goalie Alec Richards (Robbinsdale, Minn.), she is among the candidates for the East squad at the upcoming NCAA Frozen Four Skills Challenge.

Resor made history as the first Yale women's hockey player selected to the U.S. Olympic Team roster when she was picked for the 2006 Torino Games. In addition to her bronze medal at the Olympics, she also won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2005 IIHF Women's World Championship and won silver medals at the Four Nations Cup three times (2005-2007) and at the 2007 IIHF Women's World Championship. Prior to Yale, she played for Noble and Greenough and Assabet Valley.

Resor is a two-time second team All-Ivy selection, the first Bulldog to earn two second team selections since Sarah Love '06.
