Maeghan Kennard Honored as AHCA All-American Scholar for Third Time

COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College women's ice hockey rising senior Maeghan Kennard (Hamlin, N.Y./Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles) was recognized as an American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) All-American Scholar for the third time in her career this week, landing the accolade for the 2021-22 school year.

To be eligible for the award, student-athletes needed to accumulate a minimum 3.75 grade-point average during both the fall and spring semesters this past school year and have competed in at least 40% of their team's games. Kennard turned in two goals and four assists in 23 games while winning 179 faceoffs as one of the Purple Knights' three primary centers.

Kennard is the fourth three-time qualifier in program history. Since the award was first presented for the 2016-17 season, Madison Nichols '19, Torrie Gray '20 and Krista Ferrari '21 were also recognized on three occasions. Kennard, who was among 48 student-athletes from the Division I New England Women's Hockey Alliance (NEWHA) to land the honor, was one of 19 women recently named 2021-22 NEWHA Student-Athlete of the Year after posting a 4.0 GPA this year.
