«Jessy has had an out­stand­ing year,» said Alex Perno, the Gaiters’ head coach. «She is with­out a doubt our leader on of­fence and de­fence. On de­fence, this year, she has been un­be­liev­able. She is a lock-down de­fender. She is our field gen­eral on the floor.»

Cham­ber­land, 21, led the Gaiters, and was fourth in the prov­ince, with 11,9 points per game. The exVolon­taire was sec­ond in Que­bec with a 0.358 three-point shoot­ing per­cent­age, and third in the league with 1.6 three­p­oint­ers per game. She scored in dou­ble fig­ures ten times in 16 games this year.

Fortin-trem­blay, 21, started 15 of 16 league games for the Gaiters this year. The six-foot cen­tre tied for sec­ond in the league with 14 blocked shots in 16 games. She fin­ished third on the Gaiters with 6.6 points per game, and av­er­aged 3.3 re­bounds per con­test. Her sea­son was high­lighted by a 17-point, six-re­bound per­for­mance on Jan­uary 20 at UQAM.

Katz, 20, started all 16 league games for Bishop’s. She fin­ished with 6.3 points and 3.9 re­bounds per game. She was tied for tenth in the prov­ince with six blocked shots. She posted her first ca­reer dou­ble-dou­ble on Jan­uary 7 at UQAM, as she scored 13 points and grabbed 12 re­bounds.
