The two forwards are also two of the three captains on the team in seniors Reagan Fischer (Irma, Alberta) and Kelly Foley (South Boston, Mass.). Junior Sasha Nanji (Markham, Ontario) made the second team at defenseman and sophomore Lindsay Holdcroft (Pittsburgh, Pa.) made it at goaltender.

Fischer and Foley have consistently been a part of the team's top line all season. In 28 games this season, Fischer has 12 goals and 17 assists for 29 points. She also has three power-play goals, four game-winning goals, one shorthanded goal and one game-tying goal. She is second on the team in plus/minus at +25.

Foley recently eclipsed the 100-point total for her career after registering five assists this weekend, including a career high four in the 10-5 victory over Yale. On the season, she has played in 28 games, recorded a team-high 16 goals and has 17 assists for 33 points. She has two power-play goals and one game-winning goal. She has a plus/minus of +23. Foley earned first team All-Ivy last season.
