CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Five members of the Harvard women's hockey team have been named All-Ivy honorees, including three on the Ancient Eight's First Team. Defenseman Sarah Edney, forward Mary Parker and goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer were all tabbed First Team All-Ivy, while defenseman Michelle Picard was named to the Second Team and forward Sydney Daniels earned an Honorable Mention nod.

Parker was fourth in the League with 32 points (14-18—32) as the Crimson's leading scorer. Parker, who earned a Second Team nod last season, accumulated 1.10 points per game this season for Harvard. The junior had three game winning goals, and the only shorthanded tally the Crimson has scored all season.

Edney, who was one of just two unanimous selections, has been a stalwart in the defensive rotation, logging incredible minutes all year. She leads all Harvard defensemen – and is fifth in the League – with 16 points on four goals and 12 assists, four of which have come on the power play. She continually sacrifices on the defensive end, rounding up 36 blocks, second most on the team.

Maschmeyer has been one of the sturdiest goaltenders all season long, including a streak of 12-1 after a grinding 0-2-2 start to the 2014-15 campaign. She ranks eighth in the country among Division I programs with her 1.55 goals against average, and is seventh in both save percentage (.937) and win percentage (.711). She has accumulated 416 saves this season, giving her 1612 in her three-year career.

Picard has been a torment for opposing offenses all season long. Her 24 blocks are deceiving as she has the ability to disrupt plays before they start in the defensive zone. The junior from Taunton, Massachusetts, is second on the team in defensemen scoring with 13 points (2-11—13), just behind Edney. Daniels has been a threat on offense all season long, and is tied for the team lead with 16 goals. Five of those 16 are game winners, fourth most in the NCAA, and she owns three first goals and a game tying goal as well. Her 22 points is a career high and tied for third on the squad this season.
