The Lancers women’s basketball team have started the season experiencing exhibition bliss as they piled up two straight wins at the St. Dennis Centre.

The lady lancers beat Montmorency College 59-56 and Humber College 82-77. With these two wins the lancers are now 2-0 in the season. Their next game comes Oct 6 as they travel to Montreal where they will play in the UQAM Citandins tournament. Their first round match up comes against powerhouse Quebec squad Université du Québec à Montréal Citandins.

The team travels to Regina the following weekend to participate in the University of Regina Cougars tournament. The team’s preseason schedule is a tough one especially against the teams in Montreal and Regina. However, with the first two wins at home, head coach Chantal Vallee has complete confidence in her team that they will escape both weekends with the win.

“We have a great group of girls this year on the team and I strongly believe we are more then capable to take care of business this weekend,” said Vallee.

The Lancer ladies are lead by fifth year standout Cheyanne Roger who averaged 11.1 PPG, 6.5 RPG last season for the team.

Social media staff member Jenny Forshawe has been taking pictures for the Lancers for three years and said she knows how well the women can compete, especially Roger.

“Cheyanne is really competitive and I’ve often get some really good shots of her even in practice,” said Forshawe. “My photos have gotten major attention especially on Instagram and have people talking about Lancer athletics.

The Lancers first regular season OUA action comes Oct. 28 when they take on the visiting Guelph Gryphons.

Last year the lady Lancers started the season with seven straight wins before losing to the Ryerson Rams. With a great start to the season so far, the lancers look to keep the momentum going.
