What Would A Chatham-Kent University Or College Women’s Basketball Team Look Like?

Chatham-Kent may never have a University or College sports team of our own, but if we did, women’s basketball could be a strong point.

Let’s remove Bridget Carleton’s greatness from the equation, and let’s look at this season.

Chatham-Kent would field a pretty darn good OUA or OCAA level basketball team. Let’s take a look at a potential roster.

How about we throw out former OUA All-Rookie team member, and current OUA Second Team All-Star Burke Bechard, who plays for the University of Guelph.

We could back that up with OCAA All-Stars Logan Kucera and Jana Kucera, who play for the St. Clair College Saints.

We’d have size and experience in Brett Fischer and Sawyer Fischer, sisters who play OUA basketball for Western University and Algoma University respectively.

Then we’d have the dynamic OUA freshman duo of Maggie Denys (University of Windsor) and Megan McCarter (Nipissing University).

If that wasn’t enough, coming off the bench, Chatham-Kent’s team could add in from the powerhouse Fanshawe College Falcons, Jessica Jordan, Legacie Blackbird, and Ashleigh Lablance, as well as Meghan Zelina from the St. Clair Saints, and Brooke Turner from Mohawk College.

That’s a 12 player deep roster, filled with the talent to compete in the OUA or OCAA.
