FEMALE: Steffi Wong, University of Toronto Varsity Blues, Tennis
Steffi Wong was a major factor for the Varsity Blues women’s tennis team winning their 10th OUA title this past weekend (Oct. 11-13) at Mayfair Park. A sixth-year veteran of the team, Wong was a triple winner, claiming gold in the No. 2 singles flight, the No. 1 doubles flight, as well as Toronto’s title. The Unionville, Ont., native and dentistry major was dominant on the court all weekend and did not drop a set throughout the tournament, defeating McMaster’s Shivanie Skandarahah 6-0, 6-3, York’s Julia Kedrzycki 6-0, 6-1 and topping Montreal’s Karine Bourdages 6-4, 6-1 in the finals. Wong was paired with teammate Aya Bara in doubles action, and beat York’s Valerie Ushanova and Kedrzycki 8-6 in the finals. She earned OUA all-star honours for the second straight season.
MALE: Ian Filion, Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks, Baseball
Starting pitcher Ian Filion of Whitby, Ont., threw a no-hitter for the Golden Hawks in a 12-0 win over the Toronto Varsity Blues on Saturday. The fourth-year economics major faced only one batter higher than the minimum, walking one, while striking out three to lower his season ERA to an impressive 1.71. The no-hitter was just the second in the history of the Golden Hawks' program and clinched Laurier a spot in this weekend’s OUA Championship tournament.
