• Emerance Maschmeyer earned her second ECAC Goaltender of the Week Award Jan. 26 after earning her fourth shutout of the season vs. Dartmouth Jan. 23. Maschmeyer also tallied 36 saves on the week against No. 1/1 Boston College.

Three Cheers

The senior captain also registered 36 saves against No. 1/1 Boston College on Tuesday, one off her season-best 37 set against Princeton Dec. 4.
