Female Athlete of the Week – Kaitlyn Overeem (Brantford, Ont.) – 1st Year – Waterloo Warriors
Kaitlyn Overeem put together one of the best weekends in the history of the Waterloo Warriors women’s basketball program this past weekend, posting 40 points, 17 assists, 12 rebounds, six steals, and three blocks in the team’s two victories.
The stat-stuffing weekend began with a Friday night win over Nipissing. Overeem put up 25 points, while adding eight rebounds and eight assists, with the near triple-double effort sparking a 78-63 contest. On Saturday, the first-year point guard tallied another 15 points, four rebounds, and nine helpers, a line that included the game-winning bucket with 30 seconds to go in the 63-61 win over Laurentian.
Overeem was a true catalyst in helping the black and gold end their fall schedule on a two-game winning streak after earning just one win entering the weekend’s action.
