Hunter Ath­lete Of The Week

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

The De­part­ment of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation at Bishop’s Univer­sity is pleased to an­nounce that se­nior Tim Hunter of the men’s bas­ket­ball team has been named this week’s Provigo, Robert La­fond Ath­lete of the Week.

The fifth year Baie D’Urfe, Que­bec na­tive played two of his best games in a Gaiters uni­form last week when stakes were the high­est. In the RSEQ semi-fi­nal in Len­noxville, the sports stud­ies ma­jor led the Gaiters to their first play­off win since 2004. They beat the Con­cor­dia Stingers 70-63. He scored 13 points, was 4-4 from the free throw line in­clud­ing a pair to put the game on ice in the fi­nal min­utes. He was cred­ited with three blocks, grabbed three re­bounds, had a pair of as­sists and a pair steals and played 36 min­utes. The win moved the Gaiters onto the RSEQ fi­nal where they trav­eled to Mon­treal to face the McGill Red­men.

As the Gaiters sea­son came to a close, Hunter led them to a sto­ried run and helped re­ju­ve­nate pride in Bishop’s bas­ket­ball.

Bishop’s Ath­let­ics was proud to have had our ath­lete of the week spon­sored by Provigo, Robert La­fond through­out the 2012-13 sea­son. A com­plete list of win­ners can be found on page 15.
