College Hockey:
Brewer Wins Third Annual Kazmaier Award

Netminder Ali Brewer, who led the ECAC with 1.33 goals-against average while compiling a 21-3-3 record for top-ranked Brown, has been named the 2000 winner of the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award.

The award, given annually to the outstanding player in women’s college hockey, was presented at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Thursday. Brewer was selected from a group of four finalists by the Kazmaier Award’s 11-member committee.

“Ali Brewer has turned in an outstanding senior season for Brown University, and recognizing her with this honor is part of a fitting end to a remarkable collegiate career,” said USA Hockey Foundation President Walter L. Bush, Jr. “Her achievements truly reflect the qualities and accomplishments that the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award represents.”

Said Polly Rua, senior manager of sponsorships for Texaco, the award’s presenting sponsor, “We congratulate all the candidates, especially Ali Brewer, who through their passion, hard work, dedication and continuous pursuit of excellence, have demonstrated world-class performance.”

Brewer is tied for first in the nation in overall wins with 24, second in save percentage and third in GAA. She was named the ECAC goaltender of the week three times this year.

Her Bears squad faces ECAC rival Dartmouth this weekend in the AWCHA national semifinals.
