For the first time in program history, a Chatham women’s hockey player has been named first-team all-conference.
Senior defender Kasandra Petersen was named to the All-UCHC First Team after finishing her final year with the Cougars by leading the team with 13 goals, 16 assists and 29 points.
Petersen, a Minnesota native, set the program record for goals in a season in 2017-18. She’s also the Cougars’ all-time leader in points and assists.
The honors are voted upon by the league’s head coaches. The UCHC as a league just completed its first regular season. The Cougars had previously played in the ECAC West.
It was also the first year for new head coach Jessica Newstrom. The Cougars finished 7-14-2 and 4-12 in UCHC play. They ended the season on a high note, winning their final four games, but were left out of the field in the inaugural UCHC Tournament.
