BEMIDJI, Minn. – Bemidji State University women’s hockey goaltender Brittni Mowat has been named to All-USCHO.com Women’s Second-Team Friday.
In addition the USCHO.com honor, Mowat has been named to the CCM/AHCA All-American First Team and the All-WCHA First Team. Mowat also took home a pair of WCHA Defensive Player of the Week awards (Nov. 4, Nov. 18) this season.
Mowat was instrumental in the Beavers’ record-breaking 2014-15 campaign posting a 19-13-1 record with an 1.68 goals against average and .945 save percentage. All three marks (wins, goals against average and save percentage) rank in the top four in the WCHA and top 10 nationally. She was also instrumental in BSU’s penalty-killing unit, which finished second in the WCHA and third nationally with .915 success rate this season.
In just two seasons at BSU, she has set new school records for most wins in a season (19) and most shutouts in a season (7). She also set program records for highest single-season save percentage (.945) and goals against average (1.68) in 2014-15.
Mowat will be joined by 20 other returning players next season as Bemidji State looks to build upon a 21-win campaign and an appearance in the WCHA Final-Faceoff Championship game in 2014-15.
Mowat was one of nine WCHA players to be honored by USCHO.com, which was tied for the most of any conference in the nation. The Hockey East also had nine players and the ECAC had seven receive recognition.
