Savannah Varner
’s career at Robert Morris has been nothing short of spectacular, as she has been a top scorer in the ACHA for all of her three years at Robert Morris. This year Savannah led the Eagles in scoring with 53 goals and 32 assists (85 points) in 46 games. Savannah is a two-time ACHA First Team All-American and was runner up for this award in 2006. In addition, she was named Most Valuable Player at the 2007 National Championship, leading her team to their second national title in three years.
 
As a first year captain, Savannah has adopted the role of team leader and has sacrificed some of her scoring opportunities to set up other teammates. Savannah leads her team by example, working hard at practice, and at off ice practice, stretching her limits of endurance. Savannah has been the iron man for the Eagles having played in every game for the past three years.
