April 6, 2016
Hockey goalie Marie-Pier Chabot, a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) student, was proclaimed 2015-2016 Female Athlete of the Year at the Gala Méritas held by the Université de Montréal Carabins on April 5.
Marie-Pier had already been elected Most Valuable Player in the Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) championship, thanks to her perfect 3-0 record. Her two shutouts during the tournament helped her team to take its second gold medal in four seasons. She won all her seven playoff games, allowing only nine goals during a remarkable series.
Three other HEC Montréal BBA students were honoured at the Gala, winning the titles of Athlete of the Year in their respective teams: Matthieu Kennis (golf), as well as Sophie Marois and Antoine Bujold (swimming).
Congratulations to all these student athletes!
