Hamilton Huskies Alumni Named Golden Horseshoe Athlete of the Year
Submitted By Web Admin on Friday, February 27, 2015
Congratulations to Laura Fortino on being selected the 2014 Golden Horseshoe Athlete of the Year from a strong group of finalists. The announcement came before more than 1,000 people attending the CYO’s 30th Annual Dinner at the Hamilton Convention Centre, Thursday February 26.

An honour well deserved, way to go Laura !




As we all know Laura set up the overtime goal that capped a great comeback by Team Canada which defeated the United States 3-2 in the women’s gold medal hockey game at the Olympics in Sochi Russia. It marked the fourth straight Olympic women’s hockey title for Canada.

Laura was also drafted first overall in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League by the Brampton Thunder.

Other finalists for the Bill Sturrup Award were McMaster football cornerback and Colorado lacrosse defenseman Joey Cupido, Ohio State and Canadian national fencer Eleanor Harvey and Canadian women’s national basketball and University of Connecticut guard Kia Nurse.
