CK Athletes Hit The Hard Court

basketball-netWith the first season of University and College athletics ending, Chatham-Kent basketball players have returned to the hard court across the Province.

Chatham’s Max Allin, a UCC alumni, opened his OUA season with a strong first weekend. His Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks defeated Algoma, with Allin scoring 14-points, before the Golden Hawks fell to Laurentian, with Allin scoring a team high 25-points. Allin is the reigning Canadian scoring champ. Laurier will take on Toronto and Ryerson this coming weekend.

Sticking with the OUA, Wallaceburg’s Shauney Fischer and Erin Sarapnickas are in their second season with the York University Lions. York split their opening weekend games defeating Guelph and losing to Lakehead. Fischer started both games scoring a combined 7-points, while Sarapnickas is averaging 26-minutes per game, scoring a single basket. This weekend York travels South, playing in Windsor Friday, and at Western Sunday.

Former CKSS student Erica McFadden, is scoring big points for the Guelph Gryphons early, despite her team starting 0-2. In a loss to Queens last weekend, McFadden had 19-points, and scored 6-points the night before against York.

In the OCAA, brother-sister duo Oshane Daley and Anique Daley are working their ways into the Fanshawe Falcons lineup. Oshane dressed, but did not play in his first college game against Niagara last week. Anique Daley has played in all of Fanshawe’s games this season, as the Falcons Women’s basketball team opened their season 2-2. Daley scored 6-points Wednesday in a loss to Humber College. She will travel with the Falcons November 12 to face Sheridan College.
