ADRIAN, Mich. - The Adrian College athletic department has announced its 2012-13 Outstanding Senior Athletes of the Year. This year’s recipients are Zach Graham of the men’s NCAA hockey team and Brittany Zeches of the women’s NCAA hockey team.
Zach Graham was one of the most feared scorers in NCAA Division III during the 2012-2013 season as he went on to lead the MCHA in scoring. He finished ninth in NCAA Division III with 39 points in just 28 games. This impressive offensive presence allowed Graham to be selected as the back-to-back MCHA Player of the Year. He also became the first Adrian College Bulldog to be selected as a First Team All-American in consecutive seasons.
Brittany Zeches was a consistent force in net for the Bulldogs in 2012-2013 as she finished in the top five in NCAA Division III in wins, save percentage, shutouts, and minutes played. This performance led to Zeches’ selection as a First Team West CCM All-American, NCHA Conference Player of the Year, First Team All-NCHA Goaltender and a Laura Hurd Finalist as the NCAA Division III Player of the Year. Zeches set five Adrian College single season records in 2012-2013 including most wins, and most shutouts. Zeches has been an all-time great for the Bulldogs over her career as she finished with school records in career save percentage and career goals-against average.
