  • Print

The University of Winnipeg's Benny Iko has been named the CIS Male Athlete of the Week. The 6-7 Wesmen forward scored 40 points and pulled down 25 rebounds in a home-and-home two-game sweep of the Brandon Bobcats last week.

Iko, a fifth-year student and native of Laurel, Md., was named the Canada West male athlete of the week on Thursday.

 

Palmer, Walton top jocks at U of M

HOCKEY player Kyleigh Palmer and basketball player Stephan Walton have been named the Smitty's Bison Sports female and male athletes of the week, respectively.

Palmer, who plays both defence and forward for the University of Manitoba Bisons, had 11 shots and a goal in a Manitoba win and overtime loss at home last weekend against the UBC Thunderbirds.

Walton, meanwhile, had 43 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds in a pair of Manitoba wins last weekend in Regina against the Cougars.

Walton is now averaging 22.5 points per game, third in Canada West. He is also second in conference assists and tied for first in steals.

It's Walton's second Bisons athlete of the week award this month.

 

Grove shines for OCN

 

Tyler Grove of the OCN Blizzard has been named the MJHL PLayer of the week.

Grove, a 19-year-old from Selkirk, scored six goals and added three assists in four games for the Blizzard in the week ending November 18.

The runners-up for player of the week nods were goaltenders Landon Noel of the Swan Valley Stampeders and Ty Edmonds of the Virden Oil Capitals.

 

Renaud honoured

 

Winnipeg's Taylor Renaud, a fourth-year receiver for the Acadia Axemen, has been named to the AMJ Campbell All-Canadian team.

Renaud led the Atlantic Conference for the second year in a row with 51 catches for 749 yards in 2012.

Renaud's per-game average of 107.0 receiving yards ranked him fifth in the CIS.
