Amy Williams Cops Women’s Hockey Player of the Week Honor from ECAC

Senior forward Amy Williams (Potsdam, NY/Potsdam) earned the Player of the Week honor from the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) for her efforts in three games this past week, in which the Continentals posted a 1-2 record, including a 13-0 defeat of Union and two 3-2 losses to ECAC West contenders R.I.T. and Colgate.

Williams recorded a seven-point outing against Union, scoring four goals and assisting on three others. She also registered an assist in Hamilton's overtime loss to R.I.T.

Williams leads the Continentals in scoring with 27 points (9 goals, 18 assists). Her name is the only one that appears in the individual records section of the women's ice hockey media guide – a product of her skills, and of growing up with a new program just nearly three seasons old.

The senior forward has been with the program since it claimed varsity status for the 1996-97 campaign and began authoring the Continentals' record book from the beginning. Williams holds the record for every category maintained, including goals in a season (26), assists in a season (23) and points in a season (46). When you put it all together, Williams is the first Hamilton women's hockey player to net 100 goals in a career. She is at 110 with four games left to play.

Hamilton is 8-8-1 on the season, 6-6-1 in the ECAC and maintains an outside shot at a playoff berth. The Continentals will play their final two games of the season at home versus Connecticut College and Sacred Heart, one of the other teams in the hunt for one of the last playoff positions. The Continentals will face off against Connecticut College at 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 27 and Sacred Heart at 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 28 in the Sage Ice Arena at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY.
