School Day WBASK game moved to February 25

WATERLOO, Ont. (February 10, 2016) - The Wilfrid Laurier Department of Athletics and Recreation announced today that the women’s basketball School Day Game between the Golden Hawks and the Waterloo Warriors has been moved to Thursday, February 25.

Originally scheduled for Friday, February 26, the move was made to accommodate a Professional Development Day which was added to both the Waterloo Region District School Board and Waterloo Catholic District School Board calendars.

This year’s event, which is expected to draw more than 1,500 students from around Waterloo Region to Wilfrid Laurier University campus and will tip off at 11 a.m., will be the fifth School Day event that the department has hosted and the first to feature female varsity athletes.

“Here at Laurier, we have a very proud history of success in women’s sports and this will be a great opportunity to showcase one of those teams that has been at the forefront of our success in recent years,” commented Wilfrid Laurier Director of Athletics and Recreation Peter Baxter. “It is our hope that the students in the audience will be inspired by these outstanding athletes and look to seek out opportunities to get involved in sport and lead a healthy, active lifestyle moving forward.”

Students in attendance will have the opportunity to watch some of the best players in the OUA go head-to-head. For the Hawks, guard NICOLE MORRISON of Hamilton, currently ranks fourth in the OUA scoring race this season, while fellow guard Kaitlyn Schenck, a Kitchener, Ont., native and graduate of St. Mary’s High School, currently ranks sixth all-time in school history for career points with 661.

For Waterloo, third year guard Kristen Osborne of Markham, Ont., is currently eighth in conference scoring.

Overall, Laurier’s women’s team, who currently own a 7-8 record this year, has won 14 consecutive games over their crosstown rivals, including an 88-56 win at Waterloo (3-12) back in November.
