The American Hockey Coaches Association released the 2016-17 CCM Division III Women's Hockey All-Americans Thursday night and Lake Forest College's Kayla Griffith was listed for the second year in a row.
Griffith, a junior who saw time at both forward and defense this season, was a Second Team West selection at the latter position. She set career-highs with 11 goals, 15 assists, and 26 points this season. Griffith lit the lamp three times on the power play, netted three game-winners, and recorded her first career hat trick against Finlandia University on December 2.
A First Team West All-American last season, Griffith now has 58 points in her career on 19 goals and 39 assists. She also owns a +44 plus/minus rating and has played in each of the team's 81 games over the last three seasons. She is just the second played in program history to earn All-American honors in multiple seasons.
With an overall record of 21-6-1, Lake Forest set a single-season team record for victories and posted a 14-3-1 record in Northern Collegiate Hockey Association play. The Foresters advanced to the championship game of the NCHA Slaats Cup Playoffs for the third time in the last four years.
