For the record, Redeemer’s Brown is Royal


It was a big day for the Redeemer Royals women’s basketball program and its future as first-year Jesseca Brown captured the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association West Division Rookie of the Year award, was named an OCAA First Team All-Star, and made the All-Rookie team.

Brown led the Royals to their first win in seven years as the team finished the season with a total of six victories. She finished sixth overall in West and East OCAA scoring with 17.2 points per game. At season’s end, Brown counted 310 points for Redeemer in 18 games.

Her season included breaking the Redeemer record for points by a women’s basketball player in a season. She eclipsed Redeemer hall of famer Anita Kralt by one point. Her 17.2 points per game tied Kralt in first place with the best points per game average ever by a Royal.

Brown now holds the top two spots in the Royals record book with her 31 and 29 points this season against Niagara (the final game of the season) and Sault College. She also sits in a tie for third place with the 27 points she scored against Mohawk in the first semester.
