Botterill Retirement

March 14, 2011: Botterill announces her retirement from international hockey.

Botterill attended Harvard University from 1998-2003 where she played hockey from 1998 to 2003. She holds the NCAA career scoring record (149 goals, 170 assists, 319 points). Botterill's 1st year at Harvard was not played in NCAA, but in an alternate league, so her record is not official. Despite this, she is the leading scorer in Harvard University history. She scored at least one point in 106 of her 107 career NCAA games (including a streak of 80 consecutive games). She was the first player to win the Patty Kazmaier Award twice as the top player in NCAA women's hockey.
