Samantha-CornettSamantha Cornett was wanted to represent Canada since she heard about Manon Rhéaume becoming the first woman to play with an NHL team. At that moment she knew she wanted to be number one in the world in hockey and squash, and she is currently working on one of those. Cornett achieved a career-high world ranking of 28th in May 2014, after joining the women’s professional tour in 2007. She solidified her position as the top female player in Canada by winning her third straight national title in 2015. In her first Pan Am Games at Guadalajara 2011, she helped Canada win the team gold medal and also captured a silver in singles. In 2014 she was the runner-up in the singles event at the Pan American Championships and was also part of Canada’s silver medal-winning team. In 2012 Cornett received the Women’s Squash Association Sportsmanship Award.
