She has tallied 47 digs and 2 service aces. She is setting the standard as to how a leftside must play, and is doing very well in her freshman year of active competition.”

Women’s Basketball (4-7) : Katelyn Andrea (Thunder Bay, Ont.)

Coach Jon Kreiner: “Katelyn Andrea is starting to become the player she is capable of being. She’s a consistent defender and rebounder but is learning that she has the potential to be a dominant offensive player. Katelyn’s a very tough guard due to her unique versatility, she can play inside and out, can handle and shoot the ball as well as play-make, and defends well at all positions.”
