Sarah Vaillancourt ’08 (’09) was awarded the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, designating her the top female hockey player in the country, on Saturday in Duluth, Minnesota.

This is the sixth time the award has gone to a Harvard player in the 11 years it has been presented.

Vaillancourt's win was a bright spot in a disappointing week for Harvard hockey. On Thursday night, the women's team lost to Wisconsin in the Frozen Four semifinal, and on Saturday, the men's team lost to Princeton in the ECAC finals, putting an end to the season for both teams.

Read more about Vaillancourt and her teammates in the current issue of Harvard Magazine: Crimson Queens of the Rink.
