Marotta Earns Second-Team All-American Accolade


Middlebury College senior Jenna Marotta (Katy, Texas) has been named to the 2018-19 CCM Hockey/American Hockey Coaches Association (ACHA) All-American Second Team. The fourth-year Panther captain lands on the second team for the second-consecutive year.

The defender continues to bring in the accolades, as she was named First Team All-NESCAC for the second-straight season in February. She paced NESCAC defenders with 18 points this season on four goals and tied for team-high honors with 14 assists. Her 0.52 helpers per game placed her in a tie for sixth among her conference peers, while she concluded the season tied for second on the team in scoring. Marotta earned points in five of the first six games this season, tallying a season-best three points on a goal and two assists in a February 8 game with Colby. She also had a pair of helpers in Middlebury's NESCAC Tournament semifinal victory over Hamilton.

Marotta anchored a defensive group that led the conference with a 1.37 goals against average. The Panthers also ranked seventh nationally in team defense to go along with six shutouts.

This winter, the Panthers earned the second seed in the NESCAC Tournament and advanced to the championship game for the fifth-straight season, falling to top-seeded Williams, 3-2. Middlebury finished the 2018-19 campaign with a record of 16-8-3.
