COLUMBUS, Ohio – For the first time in her Buckeye career, Ohio State women’s hockey’s Makenna Webster has earned Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) player of the month honors. The junior was named the Forward of the Month, the conference announced Tuesday.

Webster tallied a team-high 13 points in the month of December for the Buckeyes. In six games, she led the team with eight goals, including one on the power play. She recorded a point in each of Ohio State’s games last month, including four multi-point games and two multi-goal games.

In the Buckeyes’ final game of 2022, the St. Louis, Mo. native recorded a natural hat trick against Lindenwood, scoring Ohio State’s final three goals of the 6-0 win. The hat trick was the team’s first of the year.

Her efforts helped the Buckeyes to a 5-1-0 record in December, including three wins over top 10 ranked opponents. She finished the month with a team-high +10 on ice rating.
