ST. CATHARINES, Ont. – The Brock University Male and Female Athletes of the Week presented by Kemp Financial for the week ending January 26th are men’s wrestler Jevon Balfour (Brampton, Ont.) and women’s hockey player Brianne Veale (Sault Ste Marie, Ont.).
Balfour, a second year major, continued to have a strong 2013-14 season as he captured gold at the 2014 Ontario Junior Wrestling Championships in Kingston. At 74kg, one of the toughest weight classes, Balfour posted a perfect 4-0 record to earn gold. He is looking to defend his OUA and CIS titles in the next month, with the team goal of helping lead Brock men back to the top of OUA and CIS Wrestling.
Veale, a fifth year Education major, helped lead the Brock women’s hockey team to a 1-1 record this past weekend and six wins over their last seven. In the Badgers victory over the Ryerson Rams, Veale recorded a career high two goals, including the game winner. After registering just one point in her first eight games of the season, Veale has come on strong adding 14 points over her last 12 contests.
