Hunter Athlete Of The Week
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.
