Athletes of the week.

The uOttawa athletes of the week are Devyani Biswal and Caleb Agada from the men’s basketball team.


Devyani Biswal won the OUA bronze medal in the 60-metre hurdles to claim Ottawa’s first medal of the championship and the first of her career. Biswal, a third-year Gee-Gee, raced to a season best time of 8.66 seconds to leap ahead of four competitors who had entered the competition with a faster season best. The Ottawa native also made the 60-metre semi finals and helped the 4x200 relay team to a seventh place finish.


Caleb Agada led the Gee-Gees to a big 116-71 win over the Laurentian Voyageurs to open Ottawa’s OUA playoff run. The third-year forward had a near triple-double with 22 points and 13 boards and nine assists, along with three steals and two blocks. Agada and the Gee-Gees will now try to defend their 2014 OUA Championship by hosting the OUA Final Four tournament this weekend. Ottawa will face Windsor at 6 p.m. on Friday while Carleton and Ryerson will meet in the second semi-final at 8 p.m. Tickets are available online.
