Trent Women’s Rugby Captain Named Ontario University Athlete of the Week


Record Day Propels Lauren Wizowski to Provincial Honour

Wednesday, September 28, 2011, Peterborough.

The Trent University Department of Athletics & Recreation is celebrating today as fourth-year women’s varsity rugby player Lauren Wizowski was named the Pioneer Energy Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Female Athlete of the Week for the period ending September 25.

Wizowski, a veteran prop and team captain, tied a Trent Excalibur record by scoring four tries in a 37-5 win over the Laurier Golden Hawks last week.  The native of Lindsay, Ont. showed great versatility for her position, scoring in several manners. Wisowski's four tries came on a 60 metre run stemming from a stolen pass, a 30 metre run, and tough mauling and rucking near the try

The award is the first time a Trent Excalibur player has been named an OUA Athlete of the Week since rugby player Lianne Schumacher scored four tries in a game during the week ending September 29, 2008.

Wizowski and her women’s rugby teammates hold a 2-1 record and sit in third place in the OUA Russell Division.  The team returns to action on September 30 when they host the 0-3 York Lions.  The game will kick-off at 7 pm from Justin Chiu Stadium.
