UMD’s Rooth Leads Women’s All-Americans

Minnesota-Duluth’s Maria Rooth leads the 2001-02 crop of women’s All-Americans, which includes four repeat selections from last year and sees six different squads represented on the First Team.

Rooth, a junior forward from Angelholm, Sweden, is the only repeat First-Teamer from a year ago. She is joined on the First Team by forward Brooke Whitney of Northeastern and defenseman Kerry Weiland of Wisconsin, both of whom were Second Team picks in 2000-01. Wisconsin’s Meghan Hunter, a sophomore, repeats as a Second Team pick.

The JOFA/AHCA University Division All-Americans were selected by members of the American Hockey Coaches Association.
