Not on an eastern All-American. I know I'm waiting for gojackets to provide the All-Americans for the western side.....

That's a nice list, but you might want to consider a place for Kristen Lewicki from Adrian on the 2nd team as well.

I haven't been able to watch enough games to make an informed decision this year. I'd only be going off stats and UW-Superior players...and to a lesser extent other WIAC teams. Obviously no one from Gustavus would ever make it :)

I really can't see the entire first team coming from the ECAC West... but then, I pay almost no attention to individuals when I watch, so I'm not sure who's worthy...

Does anyone know the criteria for choosing All-American? Is there some formula applied, or are the conference Players of the Year and those with the highest points chosen? Is there a committee that makes these decisions, and if so, who sits on it?

Having just admitted I don't know the true criteria, I will take a stab at the West:

1st Team:
F Chloe Kinsel (River Falls)
F Alice Crandall (River Falls)
F Nina Waidacher (St. Scholastica)
D Paige Johnson (River Falls)
D Megan Crandall (St. Norbert)
G Lindsey Hibbard (Gustavus)

2nd Team:
F Kathryn Larson (Bethel)
F Dani Sibley (River Falls)
F Kristen Lewicki (Adrian)
D Megan Juricko (St. Thomas)
D Betsy Anderson (Stevens Point)
G Janna Bielke-Skoug (Stevens Point)

Others to be considered:

F Tara Baago (St. Thomas)
F Kelsey Kusch (Adrian) - chose Lewicki over Kusch because PIM and +/- #s slightly better
D Sara Bier (Marian) - chose Anderson over Bier because PIM and +/- #s better
D Megan Menotti (Stevens Point) - chose Anderson over Menotti because Menotti had 66 PIM [2nd highest in nation] and a minus +/-
G Jade Walsh (Adrian) - slightly better stats that Bielke-Skoug, but chose Bielke-Skoug as she was WIAC Player of the Year

The coaches in each region vote.

The MIAC POY will be on one of the West teams. Madison Gendreau - only 26 points but well deserving. 86 points in 105 career games.

Don't they also have to be on an all conference team, or did that change?

Getting my political hat on. ;)

I actually misread his post. Correct, you have to be all-conference to be up for all-american.

Plattsburgh's Giovanna Senese gets the Elite 89 Award for highest GPA in the Final Four, and along with the tournament MVP in a championship-winning performance. All-American Awards are nice and all that jazz, but I think Ms. Senese will take those two awards and the National Championship over an All-American nod any day!
