2011 NOVA SCOTIA SPORT HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
 
FOR RELEASE MONDAY, MAY 30TH, 2011, 1:00PM
 
The Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame announced the 2011 Inductee Class that will be officially inducted on Saturday, October 8th. The one team, four athletes, and two builders will be enshrined this year.
 
Two-time World Champion and five-time Canadian Curling Championship team consisting of Colleen Jones, Nancy Delahunt, Mary Anne Arsenault and Kim Kelly lead the class. The four athletes announced include ten-year NHL defenseman Cam Russell, Olympic paddler Mike Scarola, ten-year basketball National Team Member Will Njoku, and one of Acadia universities all-time leading scorers Steve Pound.
 
The two builders are both long time advocates of their sport. Hubert Earle was an international boxing official that was instrumental in making boxing and mixed martial arts safer for its participants. Carolyn Savoy has the most wins in CIS history (858) as coach of the Dalhousie Women’s Basketball team.
 
Builders
 
Hubert Earle
Hubert was and still is a world class boxing official that was respected for his fairness and impartial officiating. Career highlighted by being the first Canadian referee to be appointed by the New York State Athletic Commission to referee a main bout in Madison Square Garden. This was a world title fight between two future boxing Halls of Famers, Roy Jones Jr. and Joe Calzaghe. Hubert held many volunteer positions provincially, nationally and internationally. He has been instrumental in developing policy to make both boxing and mixed martial arts safer for its participants.
 
Carolyn Savoy
A pioneer in the sport of basketball who holds the record for the most wins in CIS history (858) over a 32 year period coaching the Dalhousie Women’s Basketball team. With 11 League AUS Championships, she once had a winning streak of 49 AUS League games. With a level four coaching certification, her contribution to the sport of basketball has transcended just coaching with much involvement at the executive level both provincially and nationally. A mentor to many, she has published much in the area of sports psychology, coaching, and athletic performance.
 
Athlete/Team
 
Cam Russell
There are very few Nova Scotian’s that have played more than 10 seasons in the NHL, and Cam is one of them. A rugged defenseman, he played in 440 NHL games (396 regular season and 44 playoff games) once going to the Stanley Cup final with the Chicago Blackhawks (he played 10 seasons with them).
Cam was a tremendous junior player and all-star with the Gatineau Olympics of the Quebec league.

Michael Scarola
In the words of a former teammate “Mike was the hardest working paddler in Canada”. Mostly known for competing in the gruelling C-2 1000 metre, Mike and his teammate Richard Dalton were ranked the best in Canada. Mike competed in 5 Canoe Sprint World Championships winning bronze in 2002. He represented Canada at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece and is the winner of a staggering 19 National Senior Championships.
 
Will Njoku
One of very few Canadians drafted by the NBA, he did it while playing for Saint Mary’s in his hometown of Halifax. Will was a second round draft pick of the NBA’s Indiana Pacers. A member of the Canadian National Team for ten years, he played in two FIBA World Championships. As a member of the St. Mary’s Huskies he was their second all-time leading scorer.

He was a two time All-Canadian and AUS All-Star and League MVP. He was one of the only AUAA players to win the Mike Mosher Award as the one of the country’s most outstanding players. Will also played 10 years of professional basketball in Europe and the United States.
 
Steve Pound
At 5’9” no one would have expected Steve to become one of Acadia universities all-time leading scorers (over 2000 points when it was four year eligibility). One of the all-time great shooters, before the three point line was introduced. A two-time AUAA League scoring champion he led the CIS in scoring in 1970. In 1971, he led the Axemen to a National Championship. A tireless leader the three-time co-captain is mentioned in the same breath as many of the greats in Atlantic University history.

Colleen Jones Curling Team 1999-2006
The team of Colleen Jones, Nancy Delahunt, Mary Anne Arsenault and Kim Kelly dominated the world of curling winning five Canadian Championships (Four in a row) and two World Championships over a six year period. (They also won a silver medal at the World Championships over this time). The most successful team in Nova Scotia history, they redefined excellence both nationally and internationally.

Coaches for the team were Hall of Famer Peter Corkum (1999-2001) and Ken Bagnell (2001-2005). Alternates were Laine Peters (1999-2003) and Mary Sue Radford (2004-2006).

CBC-TV Charlottetown news anchor and CBC sports broadcaster, Bruce Rainie, will be the master of ceremonies of the Induction Awards Night. The Induction Awards is scheduled for Saturday, October 8th at the World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax.
