Marotta Tabbed Second-Team All-American


Middlebury College junior Jenna Marotta (Katy, Texas) was named to the 2017-18 CCM/American Hockey Coaches Association (ACHA) All-American Second Team.

The All-American citation is the first of her career for the Panther defender, who was previously named First Team All-NESCAC in February. Marotta paced the conference in blue-line scoring with 22 points (2-20-22) and tied for second in assists. She quarterbacked the NESCAC's top power-play unit, as Middlebury scored at a 27.5 percent clip (30-109).

The Panthers also rank sixth nationally in team defense, recording a goals against average of 1.18 to go along with 12 shutouts. Earlier in the season, Marotta factored in on three of the team's four goals in a pair of shutouts at Bowdoin and was tabbed the NESCAC Player of the Week.

This winter, the Panthers earned the top seed in the NESCAC Tournament and topped Amherst 2-0 in the championship game for their third-straight title, becoming the first program in conference history to accomplish that feat. Middlebury advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinal, finishing with a record 20-5-3. The win total marked the 21st time in the last 23 seasons the program has won at least 19 games.
