Caitlin MacDonald: Asper Gold

May 7, 2014 — 

Caitlin MacDonaldCaitlin MacDonald, fifth-year Accounting and Finance major and alternate captain and defence on the Bison women’s hockey team, distinguished herself this year as a true leader in business and athletics.

As an alternate captain on the Canadian Intrauniversity Sport (CIS) women’s hockey team, she earned a gold medal in December at the 2013 Winter Universiade (World University Games) in Trentino, Italy. In the final game against Russia, MacDonald racked up two goals and six assists – including an assist in the game-winning goal.

MacDonald is also the recipient of a U of M 2012-2013 Emerging Leader award. She says finding ways to balance athletics and academics hasn’t always been easy – but has always proven rewarding.

“Balancing the two commitments has definitely improved my time management skills, as well as improved my ability to work efficiently and effectively, especially under stress.”
