Rookie honours go to Oakville’s Petrou in OUA field hockey

Effie Petrou

Oakville’s Effie Petrou has been named the Ontario University Athletics field hockey Rookie of the Year. The forward/midfielder for the York University Lions had a stellar first year.

Petrou played for the Ontario Under 21 field hockey team, and was a member of the gold medal winning Under 18 Ontario field hockey team at the national championships in British Columbia this past summer.

She was a first pick for many universities recruiting and an ‘A’ student coming out of high school. In addition to her major award, Petrou was also chosen as an OUA first team all-star.
