Bing, Zanolli Recognized

STANFORD, Calif. - No. 17 Stanford was well represented among this year's America East all-conference awards, highlighted by junior Corinne Zanolli repeating as Offensive Player of the Year and senior Kelsey Bing being named Goalkeeper of the Year for the third straight season.

Following a breakthrough sophomore year in which she scored a single-season school-record 26 goals, Zanolli surpassed that mark as a junior. A five-time America East Conference Offensive Player of the Week honoree, Zanolli leads the nation in goals (28) and points (59) while pacing the Cardinal with 92 shots. Zanolli, who won the same award last year after being named the 2017 Rookie of the Year, has produced five hat tricks this season and eight for her career.

Bing was honored with her third career Goalkeeper of the Year honoree, starting all but one game while making 104 saves for a 1.57 GAA to go along with two shutouts and a .794 save percentage. The only game Bing missed was a Senior Night victory on Nov. 1 against UC Davis, as she competed as the starting goalkeeper for Team USA in its International Hockey Federation (FIH) qualifier on Nov. 1-2 against India.

Joining Bing and Zanolli on the West Division All-Conference team as first-time recipients were senior Phoebe Crosthwaite, redshirt sophomore Sarah Johnson and sophomore Fenella Scutt. Crosthwaite has totaled two goals and 14 shots in 18 games while Scutt (15 assists) and Johnson (13 assists) rank among the nation's top-10 in that category.

Megan Frost and Rose Winter were recognized among the All-Rookie team, with both players appearing in all 18 games. Frost has been a solid defender while totaling three assists while Winter has produced three goals, four assists and 13 shots.

Bing and Zanolli took home two more honors, earning spots on the All-Academic team. Bing maintains a 3.94 GPA as a mechanical engineering major, while Zanolli owns a 3.51 GPA as a political science major.

Stanford (12-6, 4-0 America East) opens play as the West Division's No. 1 seed and has won two of the last three America East Conference crowns (2016-17) while qualifying for the NCAA Tournament in 10 of the last 12 seasons. The Cardinal begins its postseason push on Thursday in the quarterfinals against Albany at 10:30 a.m. PT.
