Cameron Leonard - Former Jr Hurricanes Goalie

 

The Jr Hurricanes would like to congratulate former Jr Hurricane goaltender Cameron Leonard on being selected to the inaugural U.S. Women's National Team Goaltending Development Camp.  Cameron has been selected as one of 18 women to participate in the camp – the ages will range from 16-29 and she will be the youngest goalie in attendance.  The program is being created to mirror the Warren Strelow Camp, which is a USA Hockey goalie camp for the top male goalies in the country.  Former Jr Hurricane Logan Halladay participated in the Warren Strelow Camp before he went on to represent his country in a tournament in Austria.  It is a great opportunity to showcase your talent for future USA Hockey teams.  She will be participating with current Team USA goalies Jessie Vetter and Alex Rigsby, along with several D1 college goalies.

 

The 4 day camp will be held in Blaine, Minnesota later this week.  More can be read on the camp here:

 

Inaugural U.S. Women's Goaltending Camp Starts Today

 

Cameron Leonard continues the strong tradition of goaltender development that the RYHA/Jr Hurricanes have experienced in recent years.  She is known as a tireless worker.

 

Everyone here involved with the program wants to wish her good luck this week!  Way to go Cam!

This year RYHA and the friends and family of Buzz Culotta introduced two merit-based scholarship opportunities for Junior Hurricanes players.

The Culotta Scholar-Athlete Award honors the memory of former RYHA coach Buzz Culotta who died at the age of 49. Buzz not only had a passion for the great sport of hockey, but also for education. He encouraged his players to pursue academic excellence just as they had pursued excellence on the ice. Award funds may be used for formal education or hockey development.

The Junior Hurricanes Scholar-Athlete Award is offered to recognize and support players who embody the core values of the Junior Hurricanes including hard work, commitment, passion, teamwork, integrity and respect. The award recognizes excellence both on and off the ice. Award funds are for formal education.

The RYHA Board of Directors and friends and family of Coach Culotta have selected Junior Hurricanes player Lewis Evans as the 2015 Junior Hurricanes Scholar-Athlete and Culotta Scholar-Athlete award winner. Evans will receive $5,000 to continue his pursuit of academic and hockey excellence.

Lewis is a member of our Junior Hurricanes 16U AAA team and junior at Wakefield High School. In addition to his commitment to a rigorous hockey schedule, Lewis works hard to maintain a 4.25 GPA in a challenging schedule of AP and Honors courses at Wakefield. He is also active in school and community service through the school's National Honors Society and Beta Club.

Lewis plans to continue his education and hockey career next year at the Brooks College Preparatory School in Massachusetts.

Congratulations Lewis!
