uOttawa Desjardins Athletes of the Week

Monday November 12, 2012


The Desjardins uOttawa female athlete of the week is also the CIS women’s soccer player of the year, Gillian Baggott. The fifth-year defender has been a key member of the Gee-Gees for the past four seasons, leading the Gee-Gees to their first OUA championship since 2006 and a fourth place finish at the 2012 CIS championships, where she was also named one of the tournaments’ All-Stars. Baggott showed why she was named the CIS player of the year over the weekend with a stellar performance on defence throughout the tournament while also chipping in offensively with a goal against Queen’s last Friday.


The Desjardins uOttawa male athlete of the week is Johnny Berhanemeskel of the men’s basketball team. The third-year guard was one of the top offensive players for the Gee-Gees over the weekend, scoring 46 points over 2 games, including a 26 point effort on Saturday night, where the Gee-Gees almost pulled off a comeback against the Windsor Lancers.  The Ottawa native will look to keep the momentum going this weekend when the Gee-Gees host the McMaster Marauders this Friday in their home opener.
