Alev Kelter named ADN Female Athlete of the Year again

Because she "dominated statewide in all three of her sports and achieved national-class status in two of them", incoming Badger freshman Alev Kelter was named Female Athlete of the Year by the Anchorage Daily News last week. Kelter played boys hockey, girls soccer, and girls flag football for Chugiak High. She also represented the US internationally in hockey and soccer. You may remember that in January she captained the US U18 team that won gold at the IIHF WW U18 Championship. While winning gold, Kelter led all defensemen in scoring, led all skaters in +/-, and was named top defenseman of the tourney.

Kelter also was also named ADN Female Athlete of the Year last year.
