March 9, 2005

Worcester, Mass. - Senior Meghan Mahoney (Utica, N.Y.) and junior Sarah Wetherbee (Canton, Mass.) were named to the ECAC Women's East All-Conference second team, as announced by the league office.

Throughout her career at Holy Cross, Mahoney has been honored by the league several times, including being named to the ECAC All-Rookie team and to the All-Conference first-team as a freshman, and to the All-Conference second-team as a junior. Most recently, Mahoney became the first Crusader to break the 100 career-point mark when she assisted in the game-winning goal in the 3-2 overtime victory against UMass Boston on Jan. 7. She is also a two-time ECAC All-Academic honoree and was named to the 2002-03 Academic All-America team. This season she led the team in assists (16) and added six goals for a total of 22 points and was named team captain. Mahoney has played in 102 career-games, posting 45 goals and 61 helpers for a sum of 106 career-points.

The honor is Wetherbee's second, as last season she was named to the All-Conference first-team. This season as a junior, she became the second player in Holy Cross history to surpass the 100 point mark when she registered two assists against Amherst on Feb. 9. In 2003-04 she was also named to the ECAC All-Academic team. This season Wetherbee led the team in goals (15) and points (25) and posted two hat tricks. The first came in the 11-4 win over Castleton State on Dec. 7, while the second was in the 4-2 victory over Sacred Heart in the semifinal-round of the ECAC Open Tournament on Feb, 26. So far she has played in 76 career-games, recording 53 goals and 53 assists for 106 career-points.
