Vernon and Basso named Athletes of the Week
St. Louis Bar & Grill Athletes of the Week
The first #DevilishlyGood St. Louis Bar & Grill Athlete of the Week is Alex Basso (Toronto) of the men's hockey team. The captain scored once and added an assist in the Rams shootout loss to Ottawa to open the weekend before netting two goals, including the game-winner, in a win over Carleton. Basso's performance helped the Rams pick up three points on a tough road trip to the nation's capital, keeping them within striking distance of first place in the standings heading into the final week of play for 2017.
Theanna Vernon (Scarborough, Ont.) is our second #DevilishlyGood St. Louis Bar & Grill Athlete of the Week. The fourth year middle with the women's volleyball team was consistent throughout the week in leading the Rams to two victories. On Friday, Vernon totalled 19 points on 14 kills and five solo blocks in a win over Guelph. The following night Vernon posted 23 points on 14 more kills, 10 total blocks, and three service aces. The ten block performance (two solo, eight assisted) is the second most recorded by a Ram in a single game in program history. Vernon and the rest of the Rams finish the 2017 schedule with an unblemished 8-0 record and will return to action on January 12.
Both athletes receive a $25 gift certificate to St. Louis Bar & Grill.
