Canada West women's basketball MVP Laura Dally helped lead the Huskie women's basketball team to their first ever CIS Championship. The Kinesiology student from Bright's Grove, Ont. averaged 17.2 points per game and was named a tournament all-star at the CIS Final 8 in addition to her appointment as a CIS First Team All-Canadian.
The nation's top goaltender, Jordon Cooke, also received the award for the conference's most outstanding player after helping the Huskies win a Canada West Championship. The second-year Arts & Science student from Leduc, AB was leaned upon all season and was pivotal in the Huskies University Cup run. At the CIS Championship he was named the tournament's top goaltender after being honoured earlier in the weekend as the CIS Goaltender of the Year and a First Team All-Canadian.
Huskie Athletics handed out five other major awards at the annual Huskie Salute Friday night at TCU Place. The event also featured the achievements of the athletes of the University of Saskatchewan's 15 CIS teams. Canada West and CIS All-Stars/All-Canadians and award winners, along with fifth-year athletes were also honoured at the celebration.
