Boston College junior and Governor’s alumna Alex Carpenter ’11 was recently named the winner of the 2015 Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award. An award of The USA Hockey Foundation, the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award is presented annually to the top player in NCAA Division I women’s ice hockey who displays the highest standards of personal and team excellence.
Carpenter is the 18th winner of the prestigious award, and the first from Boston College to be awarded the trophy.
Carpenter led the nation in points (78), goals (35), assists (43), and points per game (2.23) since taking a year off from Boston College to compete in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, on the Women’s Ice Hockey Team.
Carpenter is the second graduate from The Governor’s Academy to receive this award. Brandy Fisher ’94 was awarded the inaugural Kazmaier award in 1998 when she played forward for the University of New Hampshire.
