Borgstrom gets top honor in MIAC W. Hockey

Conference co-champion St. Thomas had eight players mentioned on various All-MIAC awards announced Monday, led by senior forward Allison Borgstrom, voted conference Player of the Year.

A graduate of Chisago Lakes High, Borgstrom was a repeat All-MIAC honoree -- she was honored in 2016-17 while starting on defense.

Borgstrom led St. Thomas to a 16-3-6 record this season, including her scoring eight goals and 18 assists during a season-closing 13-game unbeaten streak (8-0-5). She finished this season with 37 points in 25 games, including 13 multi-point performances. She scored a career-high 15 goals with two game-winners and her first-ever hat trick in her final season of competition. She closed at No. 10 on the school's career scoring chart with 75 goals in 110 games, and was part of five MIAC regular-season or playoff championships for St. Thomas in her four-year era.

Borgstrom is the third Tommie player honored with this elite award over the last three seasons -- she joined 2015-16 and 2016-17 MIAC Player of the Year Kathryn Larson.

She was joined on the 20-player All-MIAC first team by four Tommie underclassmen -- sophomore Rachel Werdin, and juniors Kenzie Torpy, Demi Cooper and Heidi Hannula.
