Katie Wiggins and Angelo Sarsonas have been named Lancer Athletes of the Week after stellar individual performances during the basketball team’ sweep of Algonquin Thunder & La Cite Coyotes in Ottawa. 5th year veteran Katie Wiggins knocked down 17 points and secured 4 boards in her team’s 65-62 win over the Thunder.
Known to be a consistent & aggressive player, Wiggins shot the ball extremely well throughout her 33+ minutes on the court and went 5 for 9 from the foul line.
Wiggins and her team are back at it Tuesday night when they host the Thunder at 6pm.
Angelo Sarsonas has made a lasting impression in his first year at Loyalist. As the team’s leading scorer, Sarsonas has put up 114 points in 9 games and played a vital role in every one of those games. His speed, ball handling abilities and work ethic helped push the Lancers to a two game win streak on the road with dominating victories over the Algonquin Thunder (89-59) and La Cite Coyotes (92-60).
The men’s basketball team looks to get to .500 before the end of the first half when they travel to Kingston to take on the St. Lawrence Vikings Friday in their final game of 2017.
