Bechard Named OUA Second Team All-Star
Below is the release from the University of Guelph Gryphons website:
“Bechard, a 5’9 guard out of Dover Centre, Ontario, continues to work her way into the OUA awards year after year. After being named to the OUA All-Rookie Team her freshman season in 2017-18, she then was named an OUA 3rd-Team All-Star last season, and now following another strong campaign in 2019-20 has been named an OUA 2nd-Team All-Star.
Viewed among her coaching staff and teammates as the leader of their squad, no matter the time or situation, the Gryphons knew they could rely on their 3rd-year Psychology major at any moment.Burke Bechard
Despite having to deal with a lower-body injury that forced her out of the line-up for a few games, Bechard still managed to put together a stat line that saw her record 12.8 points per game, to go with 7.2 rebounds per game and 3.1 assists per game. A constant spark for the Gryphs, Bechard made a point of going to the dirty areas all season, while using every ounce of energy she had each and every night. Finishing 2nd in the conference, Bechard averaged a tremendous 3.6 offensive rebounds per game. The Gryphon’s guard was the only player in the category’s top-10 to be listed smaller than 5’11, with the average height of the group above 6’0, which simply shows how much heart and determination Bechard plays with on the court.”
