Lords basketball heads to Ottawa for their latest recruit
OSHAWA, Ont. - Durham College women's basketball head coach Tim Baulk is proud to announce that Kayla Marshall of Ottawa has committed to play with the Lords next season.
"Kayla's success and experience will add depth to our team this season," said Baulk. "She plays with the physicality that our team has lacked in the past and we're excited about the possibilities she brings to the program."
Marshall, a 5'6 guard, played club basketball for the Gloucester Wolverines and the Ottawa Shooting Stars over the past seven seasons. In 2009, Marshall led the Shooting Stars to the provincial finals, where her team won the gold medal. That year, she was the team captain and MVP. In 2010, the Shooting Stars returned to the provincial finals where they eventually won the silver medal.
Marshall also played basketball for her high school in Gloucester. As a freshman, she was a starter for the Senior Girls team that was primarily made up of seniors. In 2009 and 2010, she was named team captain and MVP.
In her senior season, the girls basketball program folded and Marshall played on the senior boys team. She won rookie of the year and was named the senior female athlete of the year. She was also the MVP and captain of the varsity girls soccer team.
Marshall has proven to be a leader in the community as she coached basketball at Emily Carr Middle School for three years.
Durham College women's basketball training camp will open in September. The Lords home opener will take place Nov. 6 against Loyalist College.
