Female Athlete of the Week – Jaslan Stirling (Mississauga, Ont.) –2nd Year – York Lions
York field hockey player Jaslan Stirling picked up her second consecutive athlete of the week honours for York this week, but managed to outdo her lofty opening weekend efforts to secure provincial honours this time around.
Stirling paced the Lions offense this weekend, netting six goals over their three-game span – all of which were wins. The team as a whole was able to beat the Queen’s Gaels 4-0 on Saturday and topped the Waterloo Warriors (4-2) and Western Mustangs (6-1) on Sunday. Stirling scored the eventual game-winning goal on Saturday against the Gaels and scored three of the Lions four goals against the Warriors. She capped off her stellar weekend with another two goals against the Mustangs.
Stirling now leads the OUA with 10 goals on the season, picking up right where she left off from her award-winning debut a year ago, and the Lions sit in second place in the OUA standings with a 4-0-1 record.
