The United States Hockey League announced today that Lincoln Stars forward Noah Laba was named to the 2020-21 USHL All-Academic Team.
"I’m honored to be named a USHL scholar-athlete this year and represent the Stars," Laba said. "Being a student-athlete is important to me and my grades have always been a priority."
On the ice, the Stars rookie scored nine goals and registered ten assists in 49 games. Off of it, the 17-year-old amassed a 4.0 GPA during the 2020-21 season, taking classes online through the University of Nebraska High School.
"With the support of the Stars organization, I was able to balance school and hockey this past year, making the transition to junior hockey smooth," Laba continued. "I look forward to furthering my education when I arrive at Colgate University following my USHL career."
Laba will be back in Lincoln next week for Main Camp at John Breslow Ice Hockey Center starting on July 26th. Admission is free and Stars merchandise will be available for purchase.
