Daniels named OUA West MVP
Star Laurier netminder Ryan Daniels was honoured with the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) West MVP award, the top goaltender award and was named an OUA first-team all-star last week.

Allin, Chesson honoured by OUA
Last week a pair of Laurier men’s basketball players were recognized by the OUA as the conference announced the West division all-stars for the year. Veteran Max Allin was named an OUA first team all-star while first-year Matt Chesson was named to the OUA all-rookie team. This is Allin’s first OUA first-team honour after being named a second-team all-star in 2010-11 and 2011-12 and all-rookie in 2009-10. Chesson is the eighth consecutive player from WLU to be named to the rookie team.
