Golden Hawks Hire One of Canada's Best
The goal of building one of Canada’s best Interuniversity athletic programs is much closer to being a reality today as the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks have hired one of the nations top women’s basketball coaches to build a national level program. Stu Julius has officially been named to the vacant post of Head Coach of the women’s basketball team, PETER BAXTER, Director of Athletics and Recreation, announced today. Julius, brings 18 years of CIAU coaching experience at Lakehead university where he established one of the top interuniversity basketball programs in Canada. Julius was twice named Ontario Coach of the Year in that period and was also named Coach of the Year for the GPAC in 1985-86. “The time is right to move to Laurier,” noted Julius. “I want to build a winner and be competitive over a number of years. Laurier is a great school and the commitment to winning is evident” Julius, will replace Sue Lindley, who stepped down on March 10, 1999 to take on the role of Fitness Co-ordinator within the Department of Athletics and Recreation . At that time a nation-wide search began for her replacement, from which Julius emerged as the top candidate. “We are continuing with our vision of raising the competitive level of all of our athletic programs,” noted PETER BAXTER. “Stu is a proven coach at the national level and will become an important part of the building process.” The accomplishments of Julius as Head Coach at Lakehead should provide the Hawks instant credibility as they prepare for the 1999-2000 season. In his 18 years at Lakehead Julius compiled a record of 311-250, and his teams missed the post season only one time. Julius has also served as an Assistant Coach for the Junior National Team, and has set standards to which other coaches compare themselves. “Stu is a real teacher of the game and more importantly, he develops student athletes in all facets of life,” added Baxter. “He is a tremendous coach, and also brings an exceptional ability to recruit quality student athletes.”
