2013 Wall of Fame Inductees Announced

June 5, 2013 — Thunder Bay, ON
On the heels of the Class of 2013 convocation, we look forward to commemorating Lakehead student-athletes of days gone by, who are enshrined in the Lakehead University Athletics Wall of Fame. It is with much pride that Lakehead Athletics announces the inductees for 2013.
October’s Wall of Fame induction ceremony will mark the 11th such occasion since its inception in 1996, and currently operates on a 2-year cycle, in concert with the annual Homecoming events, which promise to please once again this year.
The Builder inductee honors this year will be presented to Stu Julius, who in his 18 years at Lakehead (1981-1999) coached the women’s basketball team to 2 appearances in the national tournament. He also served as Athletic Director from 1991-1999. Under Julius’ charge the women’s basketball team hosted the national championship tournament 4 times (‘95, ‘97, ‘98, ‘99). While at Lakehead Julius was twice named Ontario Coach of the Year, once named Coach of the Year for the Great Plains Athletic Conference in 1985-86, and compiled a record of 311-250, his teams missing the post season only once.
The Team inductee, representing an era of dominance in their league, is the Women’s Field Hockey team from 1973 through ’76. Coached by Joan Stevenson, this Nor’Wester team were champions of the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) from ‘73 to ’76, won nearly every game they played, and starred two already-inducted (as individuals) Wall of Famers in Pat Brousseau and Jeannie Tuomi.
The Female inductee is Katya Masun, who was a star basketball player in the mid ‘90s on top of being the ‘96-’97  Female Athlete of the Year.
The Male inductee is wrestler Mark Jodoin, who was a national champion and Canadian University Wrestler of the Year in 1981. He was also the ‘80-’81 Lakehead Male Athlete of the Year.
The induction ceremony will take place in the Hangar, in concert with Homecoming 2013, which will include an exhibition men’s basketball tournament and the traditional Zanatta Alumni Games.
