PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Eight members of the Providence College women's ice hockey team have been named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team for the 2010-11 season.
Junior defenseman Lauren Covell (Akron, Ohio) earned her third consecutive selection to the team.
Second-time honorees included senior defenseman Leigh Riley (Lexington, Mass.), junior defenseman Christie Jensen (Delta, B.C.), and sophomore forwards Jessica Cohen (Anchorage, Alaska) and Jessica Vella (Pickering, Ontario). Vella received the team's Academic Award at the Friars' end-of-season banquet last month.
Junior winger Laura Veharanta (La Verne, Calif.) landed on her first conference All-Academic squad, as did freshman blueliner Rebecca Morse (Westfield, N.J.) and rookie goaltender Nina Riley (Lexington, Mass.).
To earn the recognition, a student-athlete must achieve at least a 3.0 Grade Point Average in each of the two academic semesters during which she was competing.
It is the third season in a row the Friars have had at least eight members on the All- Academic Team.
