The Desjardins uOttawa Female Athlete of the week is Kellie Ring of the OUA Championship-winning women's basketball team. The Ottawa native and first year point guard was named the OUA East Rookie of the Year and then led her team to a near-perfect performance in the OUA Final. Ring established the aggressive pace of the Ottawa offence in the early going by scoring the first two Gee-Gee baskets and then found her open team mates to build a commanding lead. Ring finished the game with 14 points, tied for the game high, and shot 7-for-10 in the game as the Gee-Gees defeated the defending national champion Windsor Lancers 89-40 to capture Ottawa's first OUA banner since 2003-04.
