2018 CCAA Women’s Basketball All-Canadians

The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association is proud to announce the 2018 CCAA Women’s Basketball All-Canadians.

The student-athletes, who are selected by their conference based on performance and contribution to the sport and their team, were honoured at a banquet during the 2018 CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship, hosted by Mount Allison University in Sackville, NB.

Here are the 2018 CCAA Women’s Basketball All-Canadians:

Rachel Beauchamp

 

Emma Platner

 

Douglas Royals

 

VIU Mariners

Beauchamp led Douglas to a 14-4 record and first-place finish in the PACWEST. The fourth-year forward led the conference with 167 rebounds and 31 blocks and ranked second with 13.6 points per game. Beauchamp, the PACWEST Player of the Year, epitomizes the true meaning of student-athlete. She is a CCAA Academic All-Canadian, CCAA National Scholar and now a two-time CCAA All-Canadian. Beauchamp continues to give back to the community by volunteering at the Gibson Special Olympics and Kitimat Aboriginal Youth Camps among many others.

 

Platner led the Mariners to a 13-5 record and tie for second place in the PACWEST. The fourth-year guard ranked third in the conference with 65 assists. In her first season with VIU, it did not take Platner long to fit into the Mariner family, which speaks to her personality and character. She brings great energy and intensity to every practice and game. Platner is extremely coachable and a quality young student-athlete.



Kennedy Werre

 

Kika Greenlee

 

Medicine Hat Rattlers

 

NAIT Ooks

The ACAC Player of the Year led the conference with 13.5 rebounds per game and was fourth with 15.9 points per game. Werre, a fifth-year forward, led Medicine Hat to a 14-7 record and third-place finish in the ACAC South Division. She finishes her career as the ACAC’s all-time leader in rebounds. The Rattlers captain is a three-time CCAA Academic All-Canadian. Werre volunteers at summer camps and is a great role model to younger female student-athletes.

 

Greenlee ranked second in the ACAC with 16.6 points per game. The fifth-year guard led the Ooks to a 15-9 record and fourth-place finish in the ACAC North Division. Greenlee’s consistent play was a calming influence for NAIT this season. She developed into a leader for the Ooks and a player her coach was able to count on in key situations.


Ceejay Nofuente

 

Tianna Sullivan

 

Humber Hawks

 

George Brown Huskies

The OCAA Player of the Year led the Hawks to a perfect 20-0 record and first-place finish in the OCAA West Division. Nofuente is now a three-time CCAA All-Canadian. The fifth-year point guard broke the OCAA single-season record for steals (149) and assists (140) for the third straight season. In August, she represented Canada at the FISU Summer Universiade in Taiwan. Nofuente is inspirational to countless young athletes, demonstrating success is a product of hard work, dedication, and determination.

 

Sullivan finished first among all OCAA players with 22.0 points per game. The fourth-year forward led George Brown to a 15-2 record and first-place finish in the OCAA East Division. It was a turnaround season for the Huskies, who were 6-11 a year ago. Sullivan is a leader on and off the court. Arguably the most unstoppable offensive force in the OCAA, she also averaged 2.9 steals per game and wreaked havoc on the defensive end of the court.


Roxane Makolo

 

Myriam Leclerc

 

Dawson Blues

 

Dynamiques de Sainte-Foy

The RSEQ Player of the Year led the Blues to a 14-0 record and first-place finish in the conference. Makolo, a third-year guard, was third in the conference with 16 points per game. She is also a member of the U17 provincial and U17 Canadian National teams. Makolo sees the court extremely well and involves all her teammates. Her leadership qualities can be seen in the way she prepares for games and how she pulls her teammates along.

 

Leclerc was second in the RSEQ with 19.1 points per game. The third-year guard led a young Sainte-Foy team to a 10-4 record and third-place finish in the competitive RSEQ. Leclerc led the conference with 42 assists and was second overall with 3.5 steals per game. She is an exceptional leader with an outstanding competitive spirit. Leclerc, the only third-year player on the team, will leave an immense legacy with the Dynamiques program.


Kate Gallant

 

Kiersten Mangold

 

MSVU Mystics

 

Mount Allison Mounties

Gallant led the Mystics to a 17-1 record and first-place finish in the ACAA. The fifth-year forward was second in the conference with 16.1 points per game and third overall with 8.1 rebounds per game. Gallant is a competitive, clutch player who can score in multiple ways. The MSVU captain leads by example with a well-rounded solid offensive and defensive game. She is the head coach of a U16 girls club team and volunteers as a coach at a basketball camp.

 

The ACAA Player of the Year led the conference with 17.4 points per game and 10.4 rebounds per game. Mangold, a third-year forward, led the Mounties to a 13-5 record and second-place finish in the ACAA.

During her time at Mount Allison, Mangold has pushed the competitiveness of the entire Mounties program.
