Matthew Mosseler of Fredericton, N.B., and Ann-Sophie Bettez of
Sept-Iles, Que., are the McGill University athletes of the week for
the period ending Jan. 11, 2009.
Mosseler, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound power-hitter with the Redmen volleyball team, registered 30 kills, 16 digs and one stuff block in seven games as McGill split two matches over the weekend. The 20-year-old science junior had a team record 18 kills in McGill’s 3-1 upset at Sherbrooke last Friday, which ended an eight-year, 85-match losing streak to Quebec university teams. Mosseler joined the Redmen in 2006 out of Fredericton high school.
Bettez, a 21-year-old forward with the No.1-ranked hockey Martlets, scored the game-winner and added a pair of assists as McGill defeated Carleton 6-2 in Ottawa last Saturday. The 5-foot-4, management sophomore, who returned from Germany three days earlier after competing for Canada at the world under-22 championships, has 10 goals and 24 points in only seven regular season games. She is just three points shy of leading the nation in scoring, despite playing four less contests than the CIS scoring leader. Bettez, who was voted CIS rookie-of-the-year in her freshman campaign, joined the Martlets out of Dawson College in 2007.
