OTTAWA (CIS) – Kylie Masse, a swimmer from the University of Toronto, and Andrew D’Agostini, a hockey player from the University of Guelph, are the ArcelorMittal Dofasco CIS female and male athletes of the week for the period ending Nov. 29, 2015.
Masse, a second-year kinesiology major from LaSalle, Ont., claimed six gold medals, including five in meet record time and one in Canadian record time, to help the U of T women win the team title at the OUA Fairweather division championships in Toronto. The 19-year-old sophomore swept the three backstroke events, added a fourth individual gold in the 200-metre medley, while also leading the 200 and 400 freestyle relays to victory. On Saturday, she clocked 26.84 seconds in the 50 back to break the previous Canadian short-course mark of 27.00.
Acadia basketball player Allie Berry, Montreal volleyball player Marie-Alex Bélanger and UBC swimmer Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson were also nominated for the women’s award.
D’Agostini, a second-year public management student from Scarborough, Ont., was unbeatable this past weekend, turning aside all 76 shots he faced to help the Gryphons (9-6) defeat nationally eighth-ranked Carleton 2-0 and RMC 3-0. The 5-foot-11 goaltender opened the two-game set with a 33-save performance against the Ravens last Friday night in Ottawa, and followed up with a 43-save effort versus the Paladins Saturday in Kingston. D’Agostini currently ranks second in the country in save percentage (.936) and third in goals against average (2.07).
UNB basketball player Javon Masters, Montreal volleyball player Alyson Francillon and UBC swimmer Keegan Zanatta were the other male nominees.
