Eagles' Kavanagh soars to player of the week honour

Amber-Lee Kavanagh helped lead the Kwantlen Eagles to a pair of key victories that pulled the team into a playoff position.

Kavanagh, a second-year forward for the Eagles and a Brookswood Secondary graduate, led her team in scoring both nights, registering a total of 29 points, and added 21 rebounds, five assists and one steal in victories over the Langara Falcons and the Douglas Royals. It also earned Kavanagh the PacWest female athlete of the week award for the week ending Feb. 9.

For the season, Kavanagh is top 10 in rebounds and top five in assists in the conference.

The Eagles sit at 6-14 and are tied with Langara for the final playoff spot in the conference with two games to play in the regular season.
