New Haven, CT - Setting all kinds of records on the ice and preparing for their first-ever trip to the ECACHL semifinal, the Yale women's hockey team added a different kind of mark when the ECACHL All-Academic team was announced Wednesday. A school-record nine Bulldogs made the squad, including the entire senior class, giving Yale the sixth-highest total among all ECACHL schools in the history of the award.

Yale's honorees were:

Symington and Turney were named for the third straight season, while Love is a two-time honoree. Yale's previous record for the number of players on the All-Academic team was eight, set in 2000-01.

Players are eligible for the All-Academic team if they have completed at least one academic year, have a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.00 on a 4.00 scale, and have competed in at least one-half of her team's games during the current season. Goaltenders must have played in at least 33 percent of the team's minutes.
