Coming off a 15-2, East Division winning campaign the George Brown women’s basketball program is pleased to announce the addition of six-foot shooting guard Coco Sauvé for the upcoming 2018-19 season. 

Sauvé has spent the past two seasons with the Langara Falcons (CCAA), averaging 6.9 points per game on 58.3 percent shooting from the field in 23 appearances.

"She will be a tremendous addition to the Husky Family,” said head coach Warren Williams, the 2017-18 OCAA East Division Coach of the Year and CCAA Coach of the Year nominee. “Coco is a versatile offensive threat who can score inside and outside and an intelligent defender who will fit well into our style of play.  She will bring veteran leadership to a team expected to build on a solid year."

“Our women’s basketball team is coming off a breakout season last year, but Coach Williams isn’t content with stopping there. He has continued to build on that momentum with a strong recruiting off-season, including bringing in a player like Coco,” said manager of athletics Melanie Gerin-Lajoie. “Her size and athleticism at her position will definitely be a tough matchup for any OCAA opponent, and she will complement returning veterans Tianna Sullivan, Erika Evangelista and Kiyann Grimaldo very well.”

Prior to her two seasons with the Falcons, Sauvé was Athlete of the Year at Rockridge High School in British Columbia.

“I think I can bring strength and shooting to the program,” said Sauvé, who has been playing for seven years. “I’m going to work hard every day to make sure my teammates and I are always getting better.”

The Huskies are looking to carry the momentum from an incredible 2017-18. In addition to the 15-2 regular season record and Division title, George Brown had two OCAA 1st Team All-Stars, an All-Rookie Team member, and played an up-tempo, 94-foot pressure style of play.
