BURLINGTON, Ont. – Kelsey Balkwill has been named Investors Group Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Female Athlete of the Week, powered by 2XU, for the period ending March 13, 2018.
Female Athlete of the Week – Kelsey Balkwill (Woodslee, Ont.) – 4th Year – Windsor Lancers
Kelsey Balkwill made her presence felt all weekend long on familiar territory, as the Windsor Lancers star left the U SPORTS Track & Field Championships with a quartet of medals and, as a result, has been named the OUA Female Athlete of the Week.
Balkwill had an outstanding weekend for the blue and gold, both individually and in her two relay races, collecting hardware across the board for her efforts. The Masters student in Human Kinetics collected three gold medals – winning the 300m, 600m, and 4x400m, respectively – while rounding out her championship performance with a silver medal in the 4x200m.
To finish off her winning ways individually, Balkwill received the nod as U SPORTS Championship Female Performer of the Meet, and for the team, she contributed 38 of the Windsor’s 79 total points to lead the Lancers to a U SPROTS bronze medal finish; their first team medal since 2012.
