2016 Girls’ Hockey All-Scholastics
Jaimee Cooke, Austin Prep, senior
A key part of Austin Prep’s championship run, Cooke was a shutdown defender with a long reach and the skating ability to start plays. The two-time Catholic Central All-Star will attend St. Lawrence.
Caty Flagg, Austin Prep, senior
No matter what happened in front, the Cougars could always rely on their backstop during their championship run this season. A two-time All-Scholastic, Flagg finished her career with 26 shutouts, an Austin Prep record.
Erin Healy, Arlington Catholic, senior
A shutdown presence, Healy was the anchor for the Cougars as they conceded only 13 goals in 24 games. She helped lead Arlington Catholic to three Catholic Central League titles and three appearances at TD Garden.
Caroline Hocking, Notre Dame (Hingham), senior
Hocking was the center for the rebounding Cougars, who went from 2-16-6 her freshman year to state champions her senior year. She notched 40 points this season, but often overlooked was her ability to win key draws.
Julia Nolan, Duxbury, senior
Ever since notching 22 points as a freshman, Nolan has always made an impact for the Dragons. During her tenure, Duxbury won the state title twice. After scoring a career-high 25 goals this season, she will play hockey at UMass Boston.
Melissa Zavez, Winchester, senior
The center had an uncanny ability to create plays throughout her four years with the Sachems. Zavez notched 36 of her 105 career points and earned Middlesex League MVP honors this season for Winchester (16-6).
Megan Barrett, Acton-Boxboro, senior
Barrett rounded out a stellar career as three-time All-Scholastic. She totaled 99 goals and 143 assists for the Colonials. In field hockey, she was a Division 1 champion twice. Barrett will play field hockey at Northeastern.
Carmen Braceras, Concord-Carlisle, senior
Braceras totaled 89 goals and 42 assists in her career and was a Dual County League All-Star four times. The senior was also a fall All-Scholastic in field hockey and will play field hockey at Dartmouth.
Emma Crocker, Archbishop Williams, senior
Sidelined last season with an ACL injury, Crocker returned to lead the Bishops with a team-high 24 goals and 44 points this season. Playing in one of the tougher leagues in the state, she was a Catholic Central League All-Star.
Amanda Fantasia, Billerica, senior
The defender helped her team win the Merrimack Valley/Dual County Large title this season, and earned league MVP honors with eight goals and 14 assists. A two-way player, Fantasia plans to play hockey at Salve Regina.
Michaela Kane, Haverhill, senior
The MVP of the Merrimack Valley/Dual County Small, Kane was a key part for the Haverhill co-op this season. Always composed between the pipes, she posted eight of her 14 career shutouts this season with a 0.76 GAA.
Elena Kapolis, Milton, junior
Kapolis has established herself as one of the top scorers in the state. The captain recorded 33 goals and 33 assists as the Wildcats finished 14-7-3 this season. An honor-roll student, the junior has 116 points in her career.
McKinley Karpa, Beverly, junior
Karpa was a driving force for the Beverly/Danvers/Ipswich co-op, scoring 24 goals and helping the Panthers win the Northeastern Conference title. She has 49 goals and 14 assists in the past two seasons.
Kat LeFebre, Methuen, senior
LeFebre was the only senior on a young Methuen/Tewksbury squad that won the DCL/MVC Small title this season. As a shutdown defender, LeFebre played big minutes and finished her career with 84 points for the Red Rangers.
Katie Nolan, Fontbonne, senior
Whenever the Ducks needed a clutch goal, Nolan would find it. She rounded out her career with 128 points, including 48 this season. A three-time Catholic Conference All-Star, Nolan plans to play hockey at Southern Maine.
Kiely Noonan, Wellesley, senior
The Bay State Conference MVP has been key to the success of the Raiders as they’ve made it to the Division 2 state finals three years in a row. With 64 goals and 58 assists, the senior was always a threat on offense.
Gabrielle Roy, Notre Dame (Hingham), eighth grade
No matter how big the stage, Roy could take control of a game with a quick deke and a deadly accurate backhand. She scored 23 goals this season, including 10 in the state tournament as the Cougars won the Division 2 title.
Caroline Seibold, Reading, senior
A two-time All-Scholastic and Division 1 state champion, Seibold is one of the best defenders in the state. Her strong skating can set up plays from the behind the net to the blue line. She will play hockey at Wesleyan.
