Trent Women’s Rugby Captain Named Ontario University Athlete of the Week
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
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.
