Welcome to the 2016-2017 Gee-Gees varsity season. As our teams take to the field, rinks, pools, tracks, and courts, check in every week to find out who made an impact to be named the uOttawa Athlete of the Week.

SEPT. 2-5

JULIE-ANNE LAMARCHE

The Gee-Gees goalkeeper has two shutouts in her first three games as a starter for uOttawa. A Rockland, Ont., product, Lamarche is in her fourth year of studies in Social Science and has made 12 saves on the way to three wins for the Gee-Gees. She has a save percentage of .923 and has allowed just one goal. This weekend the 5-11 keeper made five saves to preserve a 2-0 win for uOttawa over Carleton. The Gee-Gees women’s soccer team is now ranked no. 3 in the CIS Top Ten Poll.

CODY CRANSTON

Named to the OUA All-Rookie team in 2015, Cranston started his sophomore season with a bang. The corner back nabbed two interceptions on Monday against Waterloo and brought them back for a total of 29 yards as part of Ottawa’s commanding 65-1 win over Waterloo. A product of Winnipeg, Cranston is the first Gee-Gee since 2011 to have two picks in one game. The Gee-Gees football team (1-0) has its Home Opener on Saturday, September 10 against the McMaster Marauders (2-0) at 1 p.m. at Gee-Gees Field.
