Among those 19 was sophomore economics major Kara Drexler, a Manhattan Beach native and graduate of the Anaheim Lady Ducks program. Drexler was named to the All-Academic Team for the second time in her collegiate career.

Drexler, a defenseman for the Bulldogs who led the team with a plus-5 rating in 2015-16, served as a team captain with the Lady Ducks for four years. She competed in USA Hockey National Championships in 2008-2014, capturing a bronze medal in 2009.
