ACHA Academic All Americans announced

Muskies have four players named AAA | March 29, 2013


The ACHA has announced its list of 2012 - 2013 Academic All Americans and for the second year in a row, Xavier has four players to earn this honor.

Juniors Pat Riedy, Brian Gardner and Jake Van Oenen along with two time recipient, senior Nate Han have been selected.  In what is the embodiment of student - athlete, these same players also happen to be the four leading scorers on the team.  "The term student-athlete is sometimes tossed around loosely, but nobody and I mean nobody, can question whether or not these guys meet the true definition.  They set such a high standard for what can be accomplished if you are willing to make the sacrifices and commitment" coach Driscoll stated.  "What a great example of the rewards of what hard work in the classroom and on the ice can get you.  In the not to distant future, there are going to be some very lucky organizations employing these boys" Driscoll continued.
