GEORGE BROWN HUSKIES 2016/17 VARSITY YEAR IN REVIEW

year in review

George Brown’s Varsity Program enjoyed an incredible 2016/17 season, with standout performances across the board from the Huskies eleven teams. George Brown won five provincial medals, highlighted by a gold in Men’s Indoor Soccer to close the season. The Outdoor Soccer Program won bronze in the Fall, while Badminton won both silver and bronze in doubles play at the Provincial Championship. The Men’s Basketball team took home a silver after falling 76-74 one of the best gold medal games in recent memory, earning themselves their first trip to the National Championship in 41 years.     

George Brown had eleven OCAA All-Stars, and more impressively boasted student-athletes that excelled academically across the board. A total of 25 Huskies were named OCAA Academic All-Stars, led by seven from the Women’s Soccer Program.

 

Among the standout stories from the season, Men’s Basketball player Ajahmo Clarke became the OCAA’s all-time leading scorer while leading the Huskies to fifteen straight wins to close the regular season. Angeline Alviar won a Provincial Badminton medal for the second consecutive season, this time in Mixed Doubles. In Men’s Soccer, Shaq Agard was named an OCAA All-Star, OCAA Indoor Soccer Championship Tournament MVP, and was arguably the province's most dangerous striker.

 

It was a truly memorable 2016/17 campaign for the George Brown Varsity Program, and the five Provincial medals mark the highest tally since 2011/12.
