HAMDEN, Conn. -- Wisconsin senior goaltender Alex Rigsby was named a 2014 CCM Division I Women’s Ice Hockey First-Team All-American, the American Hockey Coaches Association announced today at the NCAA Frozen Four Banquet.

It marks the second time in her career Rigsby has been honored as an All-American, as last year she earned second-team All-America honors.

A native of Delafield, Wis., Rigsby became only the third player in NCAA history to earn 100 career wins last week as she helped the Badgers defeat Harvard, 2-1, to advance to the 2014 NCAA Frozen Four. Rigsby is third in the nation in goals against average with a 1.17 mark, and is second in save percentage with a .950 clip. Her seven shutouts this year also ranks fourth in the country.

Rigsby and the No. 3 Badgers face top-ranked Minnesota in the semifinals of the 2014 NCAA Frozen Four Friday in a 4 p.m. (CT) contest at the High Point Solutions Arena at the TD Bank Sports Center.
