Emily Achterkirch, Saint Michael Albertville class of 2014, was honored as the ECAC Rookie of the Week. Achterkirch is a freshman defenseman for the Division I Princeton University women's ice hockey team. She was named Rookie of the Week after scoring her first collegiate goal in the Tigers win last weekend over ECAC foe Brown University. The Tigers needed two victories last weekend on the road in their quest to win the Ivy League title. Achterkirch’s goal came in the third period to break the 1-1 tie and was the eventual game winner. The Tigers then traveled to Yale and were down 0-1 when Achterkirch sent a shot from the blue line at the net, the rebound came back to a Tiger teammate who shot it in. Her assist was on the only goal for the Tigers in their 1-2 loss to Yale. The Tigers advance to the ECAC playoffs by traveling to Hamden, CT to take on #5 nationally-ranked Quinnipiac.
Achterkirch was a member of the River Hawks girls high school team when they went to the Minnesota State High School League State Tournament in 2011 and 2013
