Senior Kelly Terry was the 2014 WCHA Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year.

June 5, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS - The University of Minnesota women's hockey team had one of its most successful academic semesters in program history this spring. The Gophers earned a 3.529 grade point average for the spring 2014 term, the highest on record dating back to fall 2007.

Two Gophers, senior Kelly Terry and freshman Sidney Peters, had 4.0 terms this spring. Terry, a biology major, was honored as the 2014 WCHA Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year as well. She intends to go to medical school in hopes of becoming a doctor. Peters intends to go pre-med as well, majoring in kinesiology with a minor in Spanish.

"What an incredible accomplishment for our team," head coach Brad Frost said. "We emphasize not only athletic success but also success academically. To have two players with a 4.0 GPA and a team GPA of 3.529 is something to be very proud of."

In addition, the team's cumulative grade point average of 3.22 for spring 2014 is the program's second best ever, trailing only a 3.26 achieved by the team in fall 2008.

In recognition of their academic success, seven Minnesota women's hockey student-athletes were honored as WCHA All-Academic Team and Academic All-Big Ten honorees this year. Returning Gophers Rachael Bona, Hannah Brandt, Rachel Ramsey and Shyler Sletta join seniors Bethany Brausen, Baylee Gillanders and Terry in collecting academic accolades.
