Smith named Athlete of the Week

WATERLOO, Ont. (March 3, 2014) - Women's hockey goalie Amanda Smith of Burlington, Ont., has been named the Laurier Bookstore Athlete of the Week for the week ending March 2, 2014.

Smith posted back-to-back shutouts to help lead the No. 4 Golden Hawks to their 11th OUA Championship this past week. The first year psychology major stopped all 77 shots she faced over the final two games of the best-of-three series as the Hawks won a pair of 2-0 games over the No. 8 Queen's Gaels to capture their second banner in the last three years. After allowing two goals on 23 shots in an overtime loss in Game 1, Smith put on a goaltending clinic to close out the series. In Game 2 on the road facing elimination, she stopped all 39 shots sent her way and followed that up with a 38-save shutout in the series finale back at home. Smith would end up posting a 0.94 goals against average and a 0.980 save percentage in the championship series to take home Championship MVP honours. 

This marks the first time that Smith has taken home Female Athlete of the Week honours in her career.
