Shakespeare’s Cohen Meyers was named an OUA All-Star.

Cohen Myers has made the most of her final season between the pipes playing for the Wilfred Laurier Women’s Hockey Team. Now, for the first time in her career, she has been named an OUA All-Star.
The Academic All-Canadian and three-time team Most Valuable Player finishes her playing career as a west division second-team all-star. Myers finished the season ranked fifth in the conference for save percentage at .946 and seventh for goals against average with 1.55. Both totals were career-bests.
In making 14 starts this season, the Shakespeare native played just over 814 minutes, good for fourth highest among OUA goaltenders. Along with the latest recognition, Myers finishes her Golden Hawks career sitting fourth all-time in program history in career minutes played.
Myers says while the team’s success wasn’t what she hoped for, it’s a great honour. “As a team, we didn’t finish with the results we wanted, so it really came as a surprise. I am truly honoured to be named an OUA all-star. It is an awesome way to end my university hockey career.”
Manager of Women’s Hockey Operations and Head Coach Kelly Paton describes Myers as a cornerstone to the team’s success. “Cohen has shown tremendous growth in her commitment to individual development, and we are thrilled to see her receive recognition for her strong contributions to the team. She has demonstrated the ability to be a top goaltender in our league - which is evident in her strong statistics. We are proud of her accomplishments and the growth she has had as a student-athlete.”
Myers has also been nominated for the Wilfred Laurier President’s Award, given to the most outstanding female athlete for their performance over the past year.
