In a rematch of last year's OCAA gold medal game, Angou led Fanshawe to an 84-65 victory over St. Clair on Oct. 30.

This student-athlete has spent five seasons working at her craft as a libero and this past week led the Mohawk Mountaineers to a pair of impressive victories.

Child currently leads the league in digs averaging 5.53 per set. Mohawk has jumped out to a 3-0 start to begin the 2019-20 season, with a match against Niagara, last season's silver medalist, at home this Friday.

Lewis continued his superb start to the season in a pair of Seneca victories. The second-year guard scored 17 points and grabbed six rebounds in a 78-64 win over Loyalist on Nov. 1. The next day, he followed this effort with a career-high 27 points and 13 rebounds for his first OCAA double-double in a 80-65 win over St. Lawrence. Lewis shot 47 per cent from the field and 88 per cent from the free throw line in the two games.

Parkins was exceptional for Durham in its decisive 45-12 semifinal victory over Seneca on Nov. 3. The speedy second-year wing has been a key defensive player for Durham all season long coming up with a number of sensational tackles, adding to those totals in shutting down the Sting attack. In addition to his sure-tackles, Parkins has come on as an offensive weapon, scoring two tries in the semifinal win, helping the Lords secure a berth to the OCAA gold medal match for the second year in a row. The championship finale takes place Nov. 10 at Georgian.

Pedis score a try in Algonquin's 24-10 win over Humber (avenging a loss in last year's gold medal match), then added another try in a 24-14 win over Durham in the championship finale.

Program: Fitness and Health Promotion
Year of Eligibility: 3

A key three-point shot late in the game put the Condors ahead and they never looked back to seal the win. Avery scored 51 points in two games last week, dropping a team-high 25 in a 95-85 loss at Redeemer on Oct. 29. Avery hopes to continue his hot hand in back-to-back games at Sault this weekend.
