The captain hasn’t missed an Atlantic University Sport (AUS) regular season game in her five-year career and has now played 124 games. Sarah Bujold held the record at 121 while Piusville’s Nicole Corcoran is third at 120.

Schurman, a forward, has two goals and three assists for five points in 24 games this season and 33 career points. Schurman is working towards her honours degree in biology after doing an advanced major in biology.

The AUS started crowning champions in 1998 but wasn’t a fully sanctioned sport until 2002-03.  

The X-Women’s history predates 1997 as a club team.
