Female Athlete of the Week – Khadi Dako, Toronto Varsity Blues, Rugby

After finishing sixth in scoring across the conference during the regular season, Khadi Dako continued her potent production into the postseason en route to the Toronto Varsity Blues weekend win.

In their consolation quarterfinal, Toronto’s women’s rugby team went toe-to-toe with the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, with Dako leading the way from start to finish. The fourth-year veteran tallied five tries in the fixture to buoy her squad to the dominant 37-10 victory.

The Markham, Ont. native scored three of her tries in the opening half to all but put the game out of reach early on, but she didn’t stop there. Dako would go on to add another two scores in the second half to seal the deal for Toronto. In nearly matching her regular season try total (7), the winger helped book her team a ticket into the next round.
