Brausen, Grogan and Ludwigson Earn WCHA Scholar-Athlete Awards

 

Three members of the University of Minnesota women's hockey team have been awarded the WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award, announced by the WCHA today. Seniors Alyssa Grogan and Nikki Ludwigson, along with sophomore Bethany Brausen, have earned the honor. Award winners must have at least a 3.5 grade point average over the last two semesters.

Senior forward Nikki Ludwigson is a three-time honoree after also earning WCHA Scholar-Athlete honors in her sophomore and junior seasons. An Eden Prairie, Minn., native, Ludwigson is a math major, and will graduate this spring. Ludwigson is also an Academic All-WCHA honoree.

Senior goaltender Alyssa Grogan is a first-time award winner. Grogan, a native of Eagan, Minn., is majoring in business and is one of the team's leaders when it comes to community service efforts. She is one of 23 nominees for the 2012 Hockey Humanitarian Award for her efforts in giving back to the community. Grogan is also an Academic All-WCHA award winner.

Sophomore forward Bethany Brausen is a first-time WCHA Scholar Athlete Award winner. A left wing from Little Canada, Minn., Brausen intends to major in psychology.

The three award winners will be honored on the ice during the Gophers' WCHA First Round playoff game on Feb. 24 at Ridder Arena.
