DHD Staff Member Clement-Heydra named McGill’s Female Athlete of the Year
MONTREAL - Football lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif of St. Hilaire, Que., and hockey forward Katia Clement-Heydra of St. Bruno de Montarville, Que., were named male and female athletes of the year, respectively, at the 37th annual McGill varsity sports awards gala, held at the Holiday Inn Midtown, Wednesday evening.
GLADYS BEAN TROPHY (female athlete of the year):
Katia Clement-Heydra, Hockey (W), St. Bruno de Montarville, Que.
Clement-Heydra, a 5-foot-7 centre from St. Bruno de Montarville, Que., becomes the eighth consecutive hockey player and the ninth overall, to receive the Bean trophy since its inception in 1992.
An alternate captain with the Martlets, she capped a spectacular season by winning the Brodrick Trophy as most outstanding player in the CIS. The 24-year-old industrial relations senior claimed the RSEQ conference scoring title and ranked second in the nation with 40 points, including 13 goals, in only 20 games. Perhaps most impressive was that she either scored or assisted on 49.4 per cent of the team's 81 markers in league play. Overall, she posted a 27-45-72 record in 44 contests en route to earning RSEQ all-conference status and CIS all-Canadian honours. She also enjoyed international success, helping Canada win gold at the FISU world university winter games in Italy last December, where she finished second in tournament scoring with a whopping 5-13-18 record in only seven contests.
