4 Cardinals earn Academic honors

CAPE COD, Mass. — Plattsburgh State women's ice hockey players Bree Doyle, Keltie Jones, Lindsay Littman and Claire O'Connor have been named to the 2007 Academic All-Eastern College Athletic Conference West Division Team, according to ECAC interim commissioner Stephen R. Bamford. A total of 38 student-athletes were chosen representing seven of the league's eight teams.
Doyle, a senior goaltender from Ogdensburg, paced the ECAC-West in goals-against average (1.36), save percentage (.934) and winning percentage (.957; 21-0-2) while leading Division III with 21 victories. A Second Team All-Conference choice, Doyle also made two all-tournament teams this season: the ECAC West and NCAA. She has a 3.19 cumulative grade-point average as a biology major.
Jones, a sophomore forward from Burlington, Ontario, tied a career high with eight assists and totaled 11 points this season. She has a 3.08 GPA in sociology.
Littman helped anchor a defensive unit that led Division III in scoring defense at only 1.17 goals allowed per game, which was third in all of college hockey. The sophomore from Eaglesham, Alberta had a career-high six points and tied a national championship game record with two points in the Cardinals' NCAA title-clinching win over Middlebury. She boasts the team's highest GPA (3.61).
O'Connor, a Chicago native, also had a career year with seven goals and 22 assists for 29 points, breaking freshman scoring totals of 5-9-14. The forward was the Cardinals' fourth-leading scorer and ranked second in assists. O'Connor also had five game-winning goals. She owns a 3.30 GPA.
