The exclusive list recognizes varsity ice hockey student-athletes that attain at least a 3.6 grade-point average each semester and participate in at least 40% of their team's contests or produce on the ice as a key reserve. There were 1,310 selections across NCAA Division II and III in 2017-18. 

Scavotto, who boasts a 4.0 GPA while double-majoring in Psychology and Spanish, was named Saint Anselm's third-ever CoSIDA Academic All-America® in early June. Cain, a Business and Finance major, is a seven-time Northeast-10 Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll selection who was named Most Valuable Player of the NE10 Championship this past season. 

On the ice this season, Scavotto led all Division I and II goaltenders in goals-against average (0.99) while ranking third in save percentage (.942) and tying for fourth in shutouts (7). In 15 starts during her junior campaign, she went 10-2-3 with 243 saves while allowing 15 goals in over 900 minutes in net to help her team to a 21-4-4 record. 

For her career, Scavotto boasts a 29-4-5 record while allowing just 40 goals in 38 starts for a 1.04 GAA, the second-best mark in program history. She also owns Saint Anselm's third-best career save percentage (.930) and ranks fifth in both wins (29) and shutouts (15), while sitting sixth in saves (534). 

Cain made five appearances in net as a senior, posting a 3-0-0 record alongside a 1.67 goals-against average across 216-plus minutes in goal. He earned NE10 Championship MVP honors with 17 saves after coming into the contest with his team down by a 5-2 margin, helping the Hawks to a 6-5 overtime victory over Saint Michael's on Mar. 3. 

He wrapped up his career with 12 appearances and a 2.66 goals-against average across just over 361 minutes of action. He notched 139 saves, including a career-high mark of 86 stops during the 2017-18 season.
