Beattie Garners All-NESCAC Honors for Second Consecutive Year

NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College senior defender Julie Beattie of Livonia, Mich. has been honored on the All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Team for the second consecutive year.

A two-year captain and leader in the defensive corps, Beattie has helped lead Connecticut College to its pinnacle as a program with back-to-back 15 win seasons. Beattie has accounted for five goals and 10 assists to lead the club with 15 points this season. She has tallied 41 career points in 100 games played, scoring 15 goals while assisting on 26 others. This season, Beattie has anchored a defensive corps that ranks #1 in NESCAC scoring defense with 1.00 goals allowed per game. The Camels also sit atop the conference with a 91.2 percent efficiency on their penalty kill.
 
"Our team is very excited for Julie to be recognized as one of the top players in the NESCAC again in her senior year," Connecticut College Head Women's Hockey Coach Kristin Steele said.  "Julie is one of the top players to ever play for our program.  She has had an impact in each of the 100 games she has played in the Connecticut College jersey. In addition to being a great player Julie has also been a tremendous leader as a two-year captain, performed well as a student in Behavioral Neuroscience and pursued volunteer opportunities with Autism Speaks and Special Olympics Speed Skating of Southeastern Connecticut."

The Camels (15-7-3), who are the eighth ranked team in the latest United States College Hockey Online (USCHO) National Poll, will be making their fourth trip to the conference semifinals in the past five years this weekend. They will visit Middlebury College to Saturday to compete in the NESCAC Final Four against fifth seeded Amherst College at 4 p.m. with an automatic berth in the 2017 NCAA Championship on the table for the conference winner.  Top seeded Middlebury will host sixth seeded Bowdoin College at 1:00 p.m. in the other semifinal.  The Championship will get underway Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
