College Hockey:
Trinity’s Iwachiw is Top Women’s D-III Player

Trinity goaltender Isabel Iwachiw has been named the winner of the Laura Hurd Award, given annually to the nation’s Division III women’s player.

The player of the year in the NESCAC, Iwachiw is also a first-team All-American and led Trinity to its first NCAA tournament appearance.

She had a 21-5-2 record, a 1.22 goals-against average and a .957 save percentage.

“Isabel Iwachiw is the most talented student-athlete to have ever worn the Trinity hockey jersey,” Trinity coach Andrew McPhee said. “She has been instrumental in the success and development of our team over the last four years. Beyond her tremendous skill level, Isabel is driven, dedicated, and competitive. Her work ethic in practice is unparalleled and she is constantly seeking ways to make herself and teammates better.”

The runner-up was Stephanie Moberg, a senior forward from Plattsburgh State.
