Wendy Hall Speth of Hailey, back in her college days at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y.

Hailey resident Wendy Hall Speth, a three-sport star, was inducted Friday, Sept. 29 into the St. Lawrence University Athletic Hall of Fame in Augsbury Center, Canton, N.Y.

Speth, a 1995 St. Lawrence graduate, was one of the outstanding field hockey players in St. Lawrence history. She won the 1995 Outstanding Senior Female Athlete Award after a collegiate career which included four years of field hockey and two seasons each of ice hockey and lacrosse.

At Friday's induction Speth became one of 178 St. Lawrence athletes plus 10 coaches and administrators and 10 teams enshrined in the Canton hall since it began in 1979.

A Ketchum money manager, Speth lives in Hailey with her husband Bryan and their two sons Colby and Dawson. She is still active in women's ice hockey, starring for many years for the Sun Valley Sunsets team based in Sun Valley.

At St. Lawrence she won the Lisa Strozewski Award as the outstanding freshman on the field hockey team in 1991 and earned first-team All-America honors as a senior. A Saints captain, she was selected as a 1994 North-South All Star.

She holds the record for goals in a game in field hockey with five against Skidmore in 1994 and shares the record for points in a game with 10 in that same game.

Wendy played ice hockey in 1992-93 and was ECAC Division III Rookie of the Year in 1991-92. She played lacrosse in 1994-95, earning NYSWCAA honors both seasons and captained the team as a senior.

She also shares the record for goals in a game in lacrosse with nine against Oneonta in 1995. She had 50 career goals in lacrosse including 28 as part of a 58-point season in 1994.
