GLOUCESTER, Mass. – BrBrendon Kerrigan '17 and current junior Maddie Scavotto of the Saint Anselm College men's and women's hockey teams were among the first class of student-athletes to be named All-American Scholars by the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) for the 2016-17 season.
Kerrigan and Scavotto were part of a list of 1,261 student-athletes across all three Divisions of the NCAA to earn the accolade, which recognizes those who achieved a 3.60 GPA and participated in 40 percent of their team's games in 2016-17. The 2016-17 season marked the first year the AHCA named All-American Scholars.
Scavotto is a junior psychology major from East Falmouth, Mass. and was Saint Anselm's primary goaltender last season. In 20 starts, she was 17-1-2 with a 1.14 goals-against average and .918 save percentage. Scavotto was named the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) Open MVP and to the NEHC All-Academic Team. She has been named to the Saint Anselm Dean's List in all four of her semesters on the Hilltop.
Kerrigan graduated from Saint Anselm in May with a degree in business and finance. As a senior, he set career-highs in assists (13) and points (17) and was named a Second Team All-Northeast-10 Conference honoree. Throughout his career, Kerrigan was named to the Dean's List and NE10 Commissioner's Honor Roll in all eight semesters and was a three-time NE10 and ECAC East All-Academic Team pick.
