MOORHEAD, Minn. (2/27/09)-- Four Concordia players earned MIAC postseason awards it was announced by the league office. Senior Bre Bian (Cedarburg, Wis.) and freshman Allie Bondy (Moorhead, Minn.) were named to the MIAC All-Conference Team while Becca Kent (Fr., Princeton, Minn.) and Kayla Thorson (Rugby, N.D.) received All-Conference Honorable Mention honors. Senior Amber Malcolm (North Vancouver, B.C.) was the team's nomination to the All-MIAC Sportsmanship Team.

All four players received postseason honors for the first time in their careers. The four players helped the Cobbers start the conference season at 5-0-1. The team then went on and captured fourth place in the MIAC standings and earned their second straight trip to the league playoffs.

Bian finished tied for third the team in scoring in overall games with eight goals and eight assists for 16 points. That is the second highest season total in her career. In conference games she had eight goals and five assists for 13 points and was second on the team in scoring. She was tied for eighth in the conference in goals scored and was tied for second in power play goals with four. She had at least one point in eight of the team's 18 MIAC games and had a season-high three points in back-to-back games against Augsburg and St. Ben's.

Bondy was the team's most consistent defenseman and played more like a mature upperclassman than a first-year rookie. She played on the power play and penalty kill units for the Cobbers. Bondy only finished the year with one assist but was one of the top Concordia players as far as ice time goes as she steadied a thin blue line corps for the Cobbers.

Like Bondy, Kent played like a veteran despite being only a freshman. She led the team in scoring in both overall and conference games. She finished her first year with 12 goals and seven assists for 19 points. She also led the team in conference games with nine goals and six assists for 15 points. Kent finished tied for 10th in the MIAC in overall points in league games and was tied for third in goals scored. Kent also had four power play goals and was tied for third in the conference in that category. She also finished the year tied for fourth in scoring by a freshman.

Thorson scored the team's lone goal in their first round playoff game against St. Olaf. She finished the year with five goals and 12 assists for 17 points. She led the team in assists and her point total and assist total were career highs for the junior. Thorson had three goals and seven assists in the MIAC and was in the top 15 in the conference for assists. She started the conference season by recording a point in six of the first eight games and also had at least one point in eight of the first league games.

Malcolm was rewarded for her patience over the first three seasons as she stepped in to the spotlight in 2009 by playing in nine games including a career-high five conference games. Overall she was 3-3 on the season and led the team in goals against average and save percentage. Malcolm finished the year with a 2.32 goals against average and a 93.1% save percentage.
