HAMDEN, Conn. – Harvard sophomore goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer has been named a Second Team AHCA All-American, the American Hockey Coaches Association announced Thursday. Maschmeyer becomes the 10th Crimson in program history to be tabbed an All-American, and the first since Sarah Vaillancourt '08-09 brought home the honors in 2009.
Maschmeyer backstopped the Crimson to an Ivy League title, an appearance in the ECAC Semifinals and the program's 10th trip to the NCAA tournament in 2013-14. The Bruderheim, Alberta, native was near the top of the nation in every goaltending category this season, including save percentage (.943) and goals against average (1.75).
After earning a 16-7-4 record between the pipes, Maschmeyer raked in regional and national attention for her stellar season; aside from being dubbed an All-American, Maschmeyer was named a Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award Top-10 Finalist, the ECAC Goaltender of the Year and the Co-Ivy League Player of the Year.
Harvard enjoyed a 23-7-4 record, going 16-3-3 in the ECAC this season, picking up an Ivy League title and the No. 2 spot in the ECAC tournament along the way, before ending its season in the NCAA Quarterfinals in Madison, Wis.
