University of Winnipeg Wesmen basketball players Stephanie Kleysen and Steven Wesley have been named the school's female and male athletes of the year.

The announcements were made at the athletic awards banquet Thursday night at the Radisson Hotel.

Kleysen, a fourth-year guard from Winnipeg's Vincent Massey, was named a Canada West women's second-team all-star after finishing seventh in league scoring, seventh in rebounding and fifth in both steals and blocked shots.

In averaging 34 minutes of playing time per game, she recorded six double-doubles during the season and was the school's athlete of the month three times during the athletic year.

Wesley, who has completed his playing eligibility, was named a Canada West first-team all-star.

He was seventh in league scoring and started all 22 regular-season and three playoff games, averaging 31 minutes per game.
