Rookie Marisa Bremner (Barrie) is the sole McMaster Marauder named to Ontario University Athletics West Division women’s First all-star team for 2013.

The versatile defender started in 13 games for McMaster and notched one goal. The Marauders finished the season with a 5-6-5 record.

Also earning First Team recognition was second-year goalkeeper Tori Edgar. The Oakville native posted nine shutouts for Western and backstopped the Mustangs to a league best eight goals against on the season.

Two more Oakville natives and Laurier Golden Hawks teammates were named all-stars. Midfielder Julie Maheu was a First team selection – scoring two goals during the season – and defender Sarah Farano made the Second team for the first time in her two-year collegiate career.

Guelph Gryphons forward Erica Bain of Niagara Falls finished second in team scoring with five goals to earn a spot on the Second team.

From the East Division’s Queen’s Gaels, rookie defender Micah Vermeer of Grimsby, was a Second team choice and crafty midfielder Alexis McKinty of Burlington rounded out her career as a second team all-star for the second straight season.
