Coming off a successful first season with men’s volleyball ending with a place on the CIS all-rookie team, Joren Zeeman avoided the sophomore slump.

national championships.

Brady Morrison
Men’s hockey

The men’s hockey goalie was one of the few bright lights in a dim year for the Gaels.

Brittany Moore completed another successful year with the Gaels, coming off a first year in which she was named to the OUA all-rookie team and selected as the OUA East Rookie of the Year. The guard posted 392 points this season, good enough for second in the province and fourth in the country.

Michael Nishiyama
Track and field

Michael Nishiyama ended this track and field season with a fistful of medals at the provincial level and a near-miss on the national stage. Just before the OUA championships, he won gold in the 600m race and a second gold with the

4×400-metre team. At the OUAs, he won a silver medal with the 4×400-metre team and at nationals he and the 4×400-metre team barely missed the podium, finishing fourth by half a second.
