Stu Julius took the Lakehead women’s basketball program to new heights during his 18-year-run behind the bench.

On Oct. 5 the former coach will take his rightful place on the athletic department’s prestigious wall of fame, joined by two athletes and the 1973 to 1976 women’s field hockey team.

Julius joined the Thunderwolves program in 1981 and took them to nationals twice, also taking over the athletic director’s chair in 1991, a post he held for the next eight years.

Under Julius’s rein the Wolves hosted nationals four times, in 1995 and 1997-1999.

Twice he was named Ontario coach of the year and in 1985-86 he earned the same honour in the Great Plains Athletic Conference.
For his career, he led Lakehead to a 311-250 mark under his watch, and missed the playoffs just once.

This year’s female inductee is basketball star Katya Masun, who played for the Wolves in the mid-1990s and was the female athlete of the year in 1997.

Wrestler Mark Jodoin, a national champion and 1981 Canadian wrestler of the year, will enter the wall of fame as the male inductee.

Congratulations to the inductees. Why has Francis Clayton not been inducted? Francis was the LU Wrestling coach for at least 20 years and he has been recognized at provincial and national level, but, never recognized by Lakehead University. He has been nominated in the past, so, something is not right here. Who is stopping this from happening and why?
