Dec 03, 2014

OTTAWA (CIS) – Hayley Wickenheiser, a hockey player from the University of Calgary, and Jonathan Tull, a basketball player from the University of Regina, are the ArcelorMittal Dofasco CIS female and male athletes of the week for the period ending Nov. 30, 2014.

Wickenheiser, a fourth-year kinesiology student from Shaunavon, Sask., played a key role in a pair of road wins over nationally seventh-ranked UBC (8-4-4) which allowed the No. 10 Dinos to complete the fall semester with a solid 9-3-4 record. The four-time Olympic gold medallist opened the Friday-Saturday doubleheader with a three-assist performance in a 4-3 overtime decision, including her third helper of the evening on the game-winner. The following night, the former Team Canada captain scored her fourth goal of the season with 5:28 remaining in the contest to lift Calgary to a 2-1 victory.

UPEI hockey player Samantha Sweet and UQAM basketball player Jessica Lubin were also nominated for the women’s award.

Tull, a master’s in sociology student from Ajax, Ont., averaged 25.5 points per game as the Cougars collected their first weekend sweep of the campaign, against the visiting Brandon Bobcats. On Friday night, the 6-foot-4 guard tied for the match-high with 22 points and also grabbed five rebounds in a 102-82 win. In Saturday’s rematch, he was even better with 29 points and 11 boards, both season highs, as Regina evened its record to 5-5 thanks to a 98-87 victory.
