09/10 Women's Previews: #35 Alannah McCready


Vitals:

Position: Goalie
Year in School: Senior
Catches Left
Height: 5-6
Hometown: Blaine, MN
Major: Psychology
Previous Team: Centennial HS in 05/06

08/09 Stats: 5 games, 1-0-0, 1.75 GAA, .909 save %
07/08 Stats: 3 games, 2-0-1, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 save %

09/10 Role: Should be in the lead for the starting spot

08/09 Recap: Alannah backed up the greatest goalie in the history of NCAA Women’s Hockey the last three seasons, and that goalie was Jessie Vetter. She only started one game last season. Though her career stats are from limiting PT, they are very good.

09/10 Thoughts: Alannah should be the front runner for the starting spot, but will have some stiff competition especially from Rebecca Ruegsegger who had an outstanding season last year at Shattuck St. Marys. Alannah knows the Badger system in and out, and was learning from the best (Jessie Vetter) the last three seasons. Goal is definitely one of the big question marks the Badgers need to answer this season.

Prediction: 16 games, 1.90 GAA, .910 save %*
*All predictions for regular season only
