The York University Lions women’s volleyball team fell just short of the OUA gold metal, losing to the Ottawa Gee-Gees in a close 3-2 final on February 22. The women placed second, winning a silver metal. In addition, Lions women’s volleyball player Brandie Wilkerson was named the Canadian Interuniversity Sport second-team all-Canadian at the annual CIS awards banquet on February 27. Wilkerson has earned many other awards over her past three years as a Lion, including OUA rookie of the year in 2011.
Wilkerson isn’t the only lady Lion who has been making big waves. On March 6, rookie basketball guard Cyrielle Recoura was named an OUA first-team all-star and a member of the OUA East all-rookie team. Congratulations Cyrielle!
