Lake Forest College women’s hockey graduate Michelle Greeneway ’16 finished her remarkable career as the recipient of the 2016 Laura Hurd Award. The Laura Hurd award is presented by the American Hockey Coaches Association to the NCAA Division III Women’s Hockey Player of the Year.

Greeneway graduated as the Foresters’ career leader with 103 goals and 20 game-winning scores. She was named a West All-American after each of her four seasons and earned Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Player of the Year honors as a sophomore and senior. Also successful in the classroom, Greeneway was a three-time member of the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association All-Academic Team. In Greeneway’s four seasons combined, the Foresters were 66-26-13 overall and 51-14-9 in NCHA play with a regular season league championship and a pair of NCHA Slaats Cup Playoff titles and NCAA Division III Tournament appearances.
