AUS All-Stars include Tommies

The AUS has released their 2008-2009 conference All-Stars and All-Rookie team and 3 Tommies are included this year.

Lucrese Nussbaum was named to the 2nd team All-Stars for defence. The Weinfelden, Switzerland native was a rock on the Tommies blue line all season long. She played major minutes and in all situations. "Lukey" was a +12 on the season and had 8 assists.

As most of you Tommie fans know, this young lady will be playing defence for her native Switzerland in women's Ice Hockey at the 2010 Olympic winter games in Vancouver. She will also be representing St. Thomas University and the Tommies. We are very proud of Lucrese.

Julia Sharun
was stellar in the Tommies net this season. The Edmonton, Alberta native set a team record for wins in a season(14) and continued the strong tradition of great goaltending at St. Thomas.

Julia was named a second team AUS All-Star, as well as being named to the All-Rookie team. She lead the league in saves and minutes played. She was second with an impressive .935 save percentage, wins (14) and shut outs (2).

Sharun is a strong competitor and her drive to get better will serve the Green and Gold well in years to come.

Kayla Blackmore had a great rookie season with the Tommies lighting the lamp 10 times this season. This Fredericton High School product stepped up when ever she was needed. She does more than just plays hockey as is demonstrated by this article.

Kayla had a great season and got the nod on the AUS rookie team. Miss Blackmore, and the rest of the Tommies for that matter, are really focused on the AUS championship this weekend at PEI and are looking to get the Tommies to their first CIS Nationals.

Congratulations to all of our Tommies All-Stars.
