Trent Univeristy is proud to announce that Stephen Hart is the RILEY's-JUNCTION Male Athlete of the Week for the Week of January 19. Hart, a Trent Excalibur Nordic Skier, won gold in both the 7.5km Skate (20:10), and the 10km Classic (35:07) races at the OUA Cup in Deep River, Ontario. Stephen is undefeated this season in both the Classic and Skate races, and has also won the Ontario cup in both disciplines this season. Hart was also named the OUA Athlete of the week for his accomplishments this past weekend. "It's great to see Trent Athletics being recognized among the provinces best," said Athletic Director Bill Byrick. "Stephen is the 3rd Trent athlete this year to be named the top athlete in the province. He's a focused, driven athlete that inspires all of his teammates." Hart, also a member of the x-c running team, was named an Academic All-Canadian earlier this year. Hart hails from Peterborough, Ontario and is a 4th year Biology student.

Madihah, an Excalibur fencer, helped the Women's Foil to a 4th place finish at the Carleton Invitational. Hepburn hails from the Bahamas, and is a 3rd year Biology / Anthropology student.

Nordic Ski Team Captain Named OUA Athlete of the Week

Trent Excalibur Nordic Ski team captain Stephen Hart earned gold in two races at the January 17 and 18 Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Cup in Deep River, Ontario, and for his accomplishments, has been named Ontario University Athletic (OUA) "Male Athlete of the Week." Mr. Hart, a Peterborough native, came in first in both the 7.5-kilometre Skate (20:10), and the 10-kilometre Classic (35:07).

The OUA Male and Female athlete of the week distinction goes to the woman and man who excelled athletically over the week in all competitions. The title is a great honour; competition is stiff as only one woman and one man are selected from all 18 competing Ontario Universities in all sports each week. This is the second time Trent has been honoured by the OUA this year, as rower Peter Van Roojen was chosen as "Male Athlete of the Week" for his outstanding achievement in the fall.

"It was a good weekend for me," said Mr. Hart. "Every competing university in Ontario was at the OUA Cup, and it's one of the bigger races of the season for university athletes, so it's great to know where I sit compared to the rest of the competition." Hart is currently undefeated in OUA action this season.

Also competing for Trent was Peter Braul, 14th (classic), 17th (skate), and on the women's side, Adrienne Mason, 15th (skate), 27th (classic), and Carly Moran, 40th (skate), and 43rd (classic). Next competition for Trent is the OUA Championships in Sudbury February 7 and 8.
