Soccer player, rower scoop up weekly McMaster prize

Mark Reilly, a fourth-year Marauder, wins his second McMaster Athlete of the Week award for his play over the weekend at Ontario University Athletics Men’s Soccer Championships.

His week started with an OUA First-Team All-Star nod and continued at the OUA semifinals where he scored his first goal of the playoffs in extra time in McMaster’s 5-2 win over the Queen’s Gaels. He followed that performance with another goal in the OUA final against the Carleton Ravens, helping McMaster repeat as provincial soccer champions.

Emily Baturin’s Pita Pit Athlete of the Week honour come after the third-year Marauder finished fourth at the Canadian University Rowing Championships in Burnaby, BC over the weekend.

The Stoney Creek native used last week’s silver medal finish in the lightweight singles at the provincial regatta to fuel the fourth place results at nationals.
