wvb_lennonwbb_williamsThe Brandon University Bobcats women's basketball program has announced the addition of two more high school recruits to the 'Cats 2013-14 roster.  Caitlin Lennon is a 5-foot-8 guard and soon-to-be graduate of Winnipeg's Windsor Park Collegiate where this past season she captained the varsity girls basketball team. For her efforts in her final season she was named a AAA Manitoba graduating all-star.  Amy Williams is expected to make an immediate impact for the Bobcats. The 6-foot-1 post from A.E. Peacock Collegiate in Moose Jaw helped her school to three Saskatchewan AAAA provincial medals, winning two silvers and a bronze.



“Caitlin is a shifty point guard who sees the floor well and is not afraid to push the ball up court. She has some offensive creativity in her game which I hope she brings to the CIS level,” says Thomas.


“She's mostly been playing point guard and has the ability to score from the point guard position. It's a big transition from high school to university basketball, but I'm excited to see how Caitlin will fit in with our program come next fall,” Thomas adds.


“To have the opportunity to play basketball and receive an education at Brandon University is the best of both worlds,” says Lennon. ”I'm excited for the opportunity this experience will bring me as I grow both mentally and physically.”


Lennon has an existing connection to the Brandon Bobcats, as one of her high school coaches is Doug Vince, father of former Bobcat men's basketball team captain Kyle Vince.


Lennon will begin working towards a Bachelor of Physical Education Studies degree this September.




“We're excited for Amy to join us. She plays the game with a lot of passion. It's a bit of a cliché, but she wears her heart on her shoulder, and when you see a kid like that play you really want them to be a part of your program,” says Thomas.


“I see Amy helping us out immediately. When you see someone of her size and strength, and with the ability to rebound the way she does it's hard to not have her on the floor. With a good summer and training camp I'm sure she'll do very well here.”


Williams is a multiple-sport athlete at Peacock where she also competes in soccer, volleyball, badminton and track and field. Her accomplishments aren't limited to the court either, as she has been an honour roll student in grades 9 through 11.
