ADRIAN, Mich. – Juniors Sarah Schwenzfeier (Hingham, Mass.) and Kim Tiberi (Raleigh, N.C.) of the Norwich University women's ice hockey team earned CCM First Team East Region honors from the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) on Thursday night at the NCAA Division III Women's Ice Hockey Championship banquet.
Schwenzfeier and Tiberi become the 14th and 15th players in NU women's hockey history to earn All-American honors and the first since Kaycie Anderson and Taylor Cross in 2015.
Schwenzfeier and Tiberi continued to add to their impressive mantle of awards this season as they were both named to the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) All-Conference First Team as well.
Schwenzfeier leads the team with 19 goals and 20 assists for 39 points to establish a new single-season career high. She recently surpassed Sarianne Lynn '12 for 10th on the NU all-time career points list. She has 39 goals and 44 assists for 83 points in 88 career games.
Tiberi leads all NCAA Division III blue liners with 13 goals and 25 assists for 38 points. She is just one point away from tying Lynn for the NU single-season record for points in a season. She also leads Norwich with a remarkable +38 plus/minus rating on the season.
Sophomore defenseman Carly Menges (Novelty, Ohio) was also named the Elite 90 Award winner at the banquet for having the highest cumulative GPA out of the student-athletes from all four schools at the host championship site.
The Cadets will continue their quest for their second national championship in just their 10th season as a varsity program on Friday at 3 p.m. when they take on three-time defending national champion Plattsburgh State in the NCAA Tournament Semifinals.
