College women's hockey: Saints' Thomeczek among top 30 for NCAA Woman of the Year Award
Goalie graduated with a degree in nursing and almost every Saints' goaltending record.
Former St. Scholastica goaltender Lexi Thomeczek is among the top 30 honorees for the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year Award .
Thomeczek graduated in May with a degree in nursing and almost every Saints' women's hockey goaltending record after starting all four years, including saves (2,232), wins (45) and goals against average (1.73). Her school-record .945 career save percentage is tied for fifth in NCAA Division III history, her 18 career shutouts is tied for 23rd and her .952 save percentage as a senior in 2019-20 ties her at 24th for a single season in Div. III.
Thomeczek, who graduated with a 3.92 grade point average, was selected from a group of 605 school nominees that was then thinned to 161 conference nominees. Each of the NCAA's three divisions gets 10 among the top 30. Nine finalists, including three from each division, will be announced in mid-October.
