Shelby Labe, Women's Ice Hockey, Trinity College
Shelby Labe was a four-year letterwinner for Trinity women’s ice hockey and a three-time NESCAC All-Academic honoree. She was selected as Trinity’s junior female scholar athlete of the year in 2015 and its senior female scholar athlete award recipient this spring. A defender for the majority of her career, Labe had four goals and five assists for nine points in 26 games for the Bantams this winter and closed her fine career with six goals and 16 assists for 22 points in 73 games as an essential piece of Trinity’s blue line.
The Pine Brook, New Jersey native has made an impact, not just on the ice, but in the classroom as well. Labe, a biology major, is a member of the College’s Beta Beta Beta society for excellence in biology and was a first-year mentor for Trinity’s Genomics Research Program. Labe also volunteered at a physical therapy facility and a hospital. She will begin work as a translational research technician at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital helping to find biomarkers for lung and prostate cancer this summer.
Labe was a member of the Trinity women’s ice hockey team that won the program’s first NESCAC Championship title in 2015 and nearly upset Elmira College on the road in the NCAA Elite Eight. The Bantams reached the NESCAC Semifinals in 2016 and qualified for the postseason in all four of Labe’s collegiate seasons. She was named to the Jewish Sports Review 2015-16 Women's College Hockey All-America Team for all divisions for her play on the ice. The recent graduate was also a member of Trinity’s 2013 NCAA Division III women’s lacrosse finalist team.
