Rewind Day 5: Women’s Rugby Championship: Queen’s Gaels
The Queen’s Gaels delighted their home crowd, hoisting their first Monilex Trophy after defeating the Ottawa Gee-Gees 28-16 in the Gold Medal Match. U SPORTS Player of the Year Sophie de Goede scored 13 points in the final en route to a Championship MVP nod.
de Goede was also a member of the Queen’s women’s basketball squad that took home their first U SPORTS medal, capturing bronze. For de Goede’s heroics on the rugby field and the basketball court, the dual-sport athlete took home U SPORTS Women’s Athlete of the Year honours.
