Women’s hockey players honored

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College women’s hockey players Carly Watson and Jessica Young were last week named second-team All-Americans by the American Hockey Coaches Association. Watson, a senior, earned a spot on defense, while Young, a junior, was tabbed as a forward.
Watson, a 2015 All-American and a three-time First-Team All-NESCAC selection, anchored the blue line for the Panthers and led all conference defenders in scoring with 23 points. The Montpelier resident capped her career playing in 87 games after missing almost all of the 2015-2016 with an injury. Over those 87 games she collected 72 points on 12 goals and 60 assists.
Young, a three-time All-NESCAC honoree and 2015 Rookie of the Year, led the conference in scoring with a career-high 36 points on 16 goals and 20 assists. The junior paced the NESCAC in assists and ranked second in goals. Young is two points away from the 100-point plateau, entering next year with 98 career points (45 goals, 53 assists) in 86 games.
This season, the Panthers earned the top seed in the NESCAC tournament and topped Amherst, 4-1, in the NESCAC championship game for their second straight title. Middlebury was selected to host a NCAA Quarterfinal before falling in double overtime to Norwich. The team finished the campaign with a record of 19-7-2, marking the 20th time in the last 22 seasons the program has won at least 19 games.
