SMITHFIELD, R.I. - Providence College women's ice hockey goaltender Genevieve Lacasse (Kingston, Ontario) has been recognized as a Distinguished Student-Athlete from the Rhode Island Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (RIAIAW). The senior was presented with the award at a banquet hosted by Bryant University on Thursday evening.
Lacasse becomes the sixth Providence women's ice hockey player to receive the prestigious honor. Previous winners include Jenn Butsch '04 in 2003, Kelli Halcisak '04 in 2004, Rush Zimmerman '05 in 2005, Karen Thatcher '06 in 2006, and Alyse Ruff '11 in 2011.
Lacasse recently completed a stellar, four-year career for the Friars. This season, the co-captain was named a New England Hockey Writer's All-Star, a Second Team Hockey East All-Star, and an All-Tournament Team selection. Last month, she was a part of the Canadian National Team that won gold at the IIHF World Championships. The netminder was later named Providence College Female Athlete of the Year for Team Sports for the second year in a row.
Also this season, Lacasse set new Providence College records for career victories (64), career games played (127), career saves (3,482) and career shutouts (20). She already owned the Friar mark for saves in a season (948). She set new Hockey East records for saves in a single tournament (127) and career tournament saves (276), having already earned the mark for saves in a single tournament game last season (58).
