Mohawk women’s soccer star Ashley Hagen was a double winner when the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association named its weekly best awards for the seven-day period ending Sunday, Sept. 23.

Hagen was named Overall Female Athlete of the Week and Women’s Soccer Athlete of the Week.

Hagen, an OCAA all-star last year, came through in the clutch in Mohawk’s match against arch rival Redeemer. The third-year forward from Ancaster scored the game’s lone goal, in injury time, as the Mountaineers pulled out a 1-0 win, improving to 2-2-0 at the halfway mark of the regular season.

The Overall Male Athlete of the Week was Jordan Lidia of the St. Clair men’s soccer team. He also collected the men’s soccer player of the week tribute while he and his teammates were chosen as the men’s team of the week.

The women’s team honour went to the Loyalist’s soccer squad.

The women’s fastball athlete of the week was Alexa Georgiou of St. Clair while the men’s rugby star was Paul Marshall of Georgian. Stephanie Doornekamp of St. Lawrence (Kingston) took the women’s rugby award.
