Bielby and Bibeau named McGill - Old Orchard athletes of the week



MONTREAL -- Steven Bielby of Pte. Claire, Que., and Hélène Bibeau of St. Bruno, Que., are the McGill University - Ye Olde Orchard athletes of the week, for the period ending Jan. 22, 2012.

Bielby, who measures 5-foot-8 and 155 pounds, earned three gold medals, in addition to a silver and was named swimmer of the meet for the fourth time in as many meets this season, as McGill captured the men's division of the Quebec Cup swim meet in Quebec City, Saturday. The 22-year-old electrical engineering senior racked up a meet-high 632 points on the FINA scale. He won the 400-metre freestyle (3:57.95), the 200 individual medley (2:05.16) and also contributed to a win in the 4x50 freestyle relay (1:35.58). A product of John Abbott College, he was also second in the 200 butterfly (2:04.14).

Bibeau, a 6-foot-1 sophomore forward with the basketball Martlets, came off the bench to score 16 points as visiting McGill handed division-leading Concordia their first loss with a 57-52 decision, Saturday. Bibeau, a 23-year-old elementary education junior who played only 18 minutes, shot 5-for-6 from the field, including a stellar 4-for-5 performance from three-point range, and made both of her free-throw attempts.

Both athletes will receive a gift certificate from Ye Olde Orchard Pub.
