MINNEAPOLIS – Harvard senior defenseman Sarah Edney has been named a Second Team AHCA All-American, the American Hockey Coaches Association announced Thursday at the Frozen Four Banquet. Edney becomes the 11th Crimson in program history to be tabbed an All-American following her stellar 2014-15 campaign.

Edney spearheaded a very veteran defensive corps for the Crimson, which allows just 1.53 goals per game, a top-5 number nationally. The Mississauga, Ontario native also was named the ECAC's Best Defenseman this season as she helped to lead Harvard to its sixth conference title and its sixth appearance in the Frozen Four.

A swift defenseman logging incredible minutes, Edney was one of the more consistent producers on the ice all year long. She accounted for 20 goals, scoring seven and registering 13 assists as a senior. Her 0.67 points per game ranked her among the nation's best scoring defensemen as well.

Harvard, which will square off with No. 2 Boston College Friday at 9 p.m. ET, sits at 26-5-3 this season, with a trip to the National Championship on the line. The Crimson has already won a Beanpot Championship, an Ivy League title, an ECAC Regular Season and Tournament Championshp during its historic run.
