GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced today that former University of North Dakota women’s hockey standout Jocelyne Lamoureux has been named one of 10 recipients of the NCAA Today’s Top 10 Award.

The NCAA Today’s Top 10 Award recognizes student-athletes who completed their athletics eligibility during the 2012-13 academic year for their success on the fields and courts, in the classroom, and in the community. The NCAA Honors Committee selects the honorees. The committee is composed of athletics administrators at member institutions and nationally distinguished citizens who are former student-athletes.

Lamoureux and the other nine recipients will be recognized at the Honors Celebration on Jan. 17 during the NCAA Convention in San Diego.

Lamoureux is the second UND student-athlete to receive the prestigious award. Former hockey and softball standout Casie Hanson received the award in 2011 when it was known as the NCAA Today’s Top VIII Award. The NCAA Honors Committee expanded the award to honor 10 student-athletes to recognize the increased number of student-athletes, sports and championship opportunities.

"Congratulations to Jocelyne for this prestigious honor from the NCAA,” said UND Athletics Director Brian Faison. “She represents the best in ‘student’ and ‘athlete’ for the University of North Dakota. Her accomplishments in the classroom, on the ice and in the community are truly extraordinary.”

Lamoureux graduated following the 2012-13 as the leading scorer in the history of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) with 285 points in 149 career games. She earned first-team All-America honors as a senior and was a Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award finalist after ranking third in the national scoring race with 81 points (35 goals, 46 assists) in 39 games.

In the classroom, the Grand Forks, N.D., native earned both a bachelor’s degree (physical education, exercise science and wellness) and master’s degree (kinesiology) while at UND and was a two-time Academic All-American and two-time WCHA Most Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year. Last May, Lamoureux received a NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

Lamoureux will play for the United States at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, in February.
