New Haven, CT - On the heels of Yale's record-breaking season, captain Erin Duggan was named first team All-USCHO and defenseman Helen Resor was named to the All-USCHO Rookie team Wednesday.

Duggan leads all ECACHL blueliners in goals this season with 11 and added 16 assists. Earlier this month she was named first team All-ECACHL, the first Bulldog to earn that honor since Laurie Belliveau in 1997-98. She also was named second team All-Ivy and ECACHL All-Academic. She finished her career second on Yale's all-time assist list (61), third on Yale's all-time points list (97), and seventh on Yale's all-time goals list (36).

Resor, who also was named to the ECACHL All-Rookie team, finished seventh in the conference among freshmen in points (7-11-18) despite missing the first eight games of the season. She ended the season strong, scoring six goals in the last nine games. That included a dramatic goal on a penalty shot in the first quarterfinal game against Princeton that tied the game with 5:34 to play. The Bulldogs went on to win in overtime for their first playoff victory, then won again the next night for their first playoff series win.

Yale set the school record for overall wins (16) and conference wins (12) this season, earning home ice advantage in the playoffs for the first time ever.
