Laganiere and Williams Named Oswego State Senior Athletes of the Year
Oswego State men's ice hockey player Chris Laganiere '11 and women's ice hockey player Emi Williams '11 have been named the Oswego State Outstanding Senior Male and Female Athletes of the Year by the Oswego State Athletic Department.
Laganiere was a member of the 2010 SUNYAC Men's Ice Hockey Championship team and the 2010 and 2011 NCAA Division III men's ice hockey national semifinalist squads. During his four-year career, he appeared in 97 games recording 34 goals and 67 assists for 101 points.
Laganiere became the 47th member of the 100-Point Club Feb. 19, when he posted a hat trick in the third period against Geneseo in the final conference game of the regular season.
Laganiere was named First Team All-SUNYAC in 2009-10 after finishing second in the league in scoring with 1.88 points per game and posting four game-winning goals. That season he tallied 16 goals and 30 assists for 46 points to finish ranked ninth in Division III with 1.03 assists per game and 12th with 1.59 points per game.
Williams, a native of Anchorage, Alaska, established herself as one of the premier goaltenders in Division III women's ice hockey during her career. Each year her statistics improved until this season, when she posted a career-best .941 save percentage (fifth nationally) and a 1.68 goals against average (11th nationally).
She was recognized for her efforts in 2010-11 by being named Second Team All-ECAC West to become the first player in the Oswego program's history to receive conference postseason accolades.
Williams finished her career with seven shutouts in 65 games where she logged more than 3,800 minutes between the pipes with a .921 career save percentage. Her impact on the women's ice hockey program goes beyond statistics as she provided a chance for the Lakers to win any contest in which she was in goal. This was most evident when she made 46 saves to help Oswego State defeat previously undefeated and No. 1-ranked RIT, 2-1.
