Leanne MacDonald is the first women’s hockey player to be inducted into the StFX Sports Hall of Fame. Not surprising she would be the first as she was the first real star of the modern era program. In her five seasons playing defense with the X-Women, Leanne was a four-time conference champion and four-time AUAA all-star. She was the first X-Women hockey player to receive All-Canadian status when named to the first team in 1999, followed up with the same All-Canadian recognition in 2001. A CIAU tournament all-star in 1999 and 2000 and the team’s most valuable player in 2001, Leanne served as captain of the X-Women and was the AUAA conference most valuable player in 1999.
