Burlington, Ont. – Kayla Lambie has been named IG Wealth Management Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Peak Performer for the period ending February 3, 2019.

Peak Performer – Kayla Lambie (Toronto, Ont.) – 4th Year – Western Mustangs Fencing

When championship time rolls around, it’s time to step up, which is exactly what Western’s Kayla Lambie did at this weekend’s OUA Women’s Fencing Championship at Brock University.

The fourth-year fencer played a significant role for her Mustangs en route to their silver-medal winning result at the provincial finale. Not only did Lambie shine as part of the Mustangs’ sabre team, which took home gold in the team relay event thanks to a strong 45-23 result over the Toronto Varsity Blues, but she also stood tall in her individual event. Against a stiff field, Lambie managed to rise above the pack to claim gold in individual sabre as well.

Lambie shone bright in more ways than one; however, as the Western standout also took home the Dave O’Donnell Trophy for sportsmanship.
