We now have one game under our belts courtesy of our cross-town rivals St. Lawrence College. We finished with a 78-48 win despite only dressing 9 players, as 6 were sidelined with various injuries. Fourth year guard, Liz Boag led all scorers with 23 points including 3/7 from beyond the (now longer) 3pt. arc and 6/6 from the foul line. Three other players hit double digits including third year wing, Jenny Wright with 14 points, second year guard, Emily Hazlett with 11 and rookie guard, Abby Dixon also with 11 points and 9 rebounds.
All nine active players were on the scoresheet with both points and rebounds. Of note, our foul shooting was much better than last season, going 18/22 (81.8%). It would be a big bonus if we continue that shooting percentage moving forward. We also out-rebounded St. Lawrence 45-37.
We will be hosting our annual Tricolour Tournament (for High School Sr. Girls) this Friday and Saturday. We have 16 teams from across the province (as far south as London, north – Sudbury, east – Ottawa & Cornwall) attending. It should be a very competitive tournament.
We will follow the HS tourney with our exhibition home-opener on Sunday at 2:00pm against the University of Quebec at Montreal.
Registration for our Alumni Reception & Silent Auction continues to grow – looks like it may be our best turnout ever.
