Lady Ice Lions Continue Strong Academic Efforts in Fall Semester

Devon Fisk's schoolwork is worth celebrating

The Lady Ice Lions had a productive 2014 fall semester in more ways than one, as a 9-5-0 overall record against a tough schedule was supplemented by typically-strong performance in the classroom.

Individual academic superstars led the way for the club, highlighted by junior forward Devon Fisk, who continued to maintain a perfect 4.0 grade point average through her college career. Freshman forward Claire Gauthier and sophomore forward Lucy Yeatman were right behind her, as each posted a 3.92 through highly-demanding curricula (engineering and math, respectively).

Forward Lauren Chaby is also academically distinguished, as she is pursuing a Ph.D. in neuroscience as well as an master's in ecology.

On the team level, the Lady Ice Lions put together a 3.21 GPA - in excess of the university-wide median - with six of 23 presently-rostered and reported players qualifying for Dean's List recognition (requiring a 3.5 average or better for full-time students). Freshman goalie Aimee Little is not included in any of those statistics, as she did not attend Penn State during the fall semester.

After enjoying this weekend and next weekend off, the Lady Ice Lions will be back in action at the Eastern Collegiate Women's Hockey League playoffs, which are set for Rhode Island's Bradford R. Boss Arena over the February 20th through 22nd weekend. Opponents and game times are still classified as to be determined and depend on the ECWHL standings, which have yet to be finalized.
