AUSTIN, Texas – Senior forward Jocelyn Hunyadi of the Amherst College women's hockey team has been named to the 2018-19 Google Cloud Academic All-America Division III At-Large Third Team, as voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), for her combined excellence on the ice and in the classroom.
Currently, CoSIDA sponsors Academic All-America programs for soccer, football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball and track and field/cross country, while student-athletes of all other sports are eligible through the At-Large program.
Capping off her collegiate career with her first Academic All-America distinction, Hunyadi is the 37th Academic All-America selection in Amherst College history, 11th to earn the honor in the competitive At-Large category, and just the second-ever ice hockey student-athlete to earn the prestigious accolade (Kirsten Dier '10 – First Team - 2010) since the program began in 1952.
49 total women were named At-Large Google Cloud Academic All-America, with the First, Second and Third team comprised of 15, 15, and 19 student-athletes, respectively, representing eight different sports.
A native of Concord Township, Ohio, Hunyadi graduated Amherst in 2019 with dual degrees in Biology and Statistics while carrying a 3.98 cumulative grade point average.
Earning a First Team All-NESCAC nod, Hunyadi led the Mammoths in assists and points during her senior season, tallying 22 points on seven goals and 15 helpers to average a 0.84 goals per game average (5th in the NESCAC).
Registering 12 of her 22 points (5G, 7A) during conference play and notching a pair of game-winning goals during the year, Hunyadi helped Amherst make a trip to the NESCAC semifinals and post a 13-11-2 overall record in 2018-19. Hunyadi finishes her career donning the Purple & White with a 28-47-75 stat line in 108 appearances.
In the classroom, Hunyadi earned the Walker Award in Math & Statistics, awarded to a student who demonstrates initiative, creativity and achievement.
In total, 13 women repeated as Academic All-America selections this year, with 19 of the 49 student-athletes posting a 4.0 grade-point average and 15 members carrying a 3.99 GPA. Hunyadi joins three other NESCAC representatives as Academic All-America honorees in 2018-19.
