Women's basketball adds post-secondary experience with third recruit

BRAMPTON, Ont. - The Sheridan Bruins women's basketball team has added length, athleticism, and post-secondary experience with the third player in their 2019 recruiting class, announcing the commitment of Devyn Mackenzie (Oakville, Ont.).

"Devyn was an OUA high jumper at Western University, but by no means are we trying to mold an athletic high jumper into a basketball player," head coach Sean Douglas said. "She has a very extensive basketball resume and was a highly recruited multi-sport athlete coming out of high school. Her combination of length and athleticism will make her a matchup nightmare for opposing guards in our league."

The 6-foot guard played club ball for the Oakville Venom and hit the hardwood for Abbey Park high school, where she was a two-time team MVP, two-time Halton All-Star, two-time school athlete of the year, and she helped guide her squad to the 2012 GHAC final.

With the Western track and field team, Mackenzie claimed an OUA indivudal high jump bronze medal during the 2017-18 campaign, and also collected three team medals (OUA silver, USPORTS bronze, OUA bronze) during her career.

"Sheridan provides a good combination of athletics and academics," she said. "I am looking forward to being able to express my creativity as well as my love for basketball this upcoming year."

Mackenzie will enrol in the Journalism - New Media post-graduate program at the Trafalgar Campus in Oakville.
