On opening night at Quest University Canada, new addition Miriam Baumann, played a major role in two home wins against Langara College and Douglas College. Baumann is a 5’ 11” forward from Montreal, Quebec.
On Friday night vs Douglas, Baumann collected 18 points and 18 rebounds in just over 27 minutes played. Quest went on to win 73-61 to open up its home stand.
On Saturday the Falcons flew into town. Langara, fresh off a nail biting 48-47 loss to Capilano, had high hopes of earning two valuable points. The Kermodes, led by Baumann had other ideas. In just over 28 minutes played, Baumann tallied 17 points and 10 rebounds in the Kermodes 59-40 victory.
Baumann’s weekend totals of 28 rebounds and 35 points led all Quest players. “Her attitude towards competition is contagious and we’re looking forward to spreading that mentality throughout the rest of the team. Although Miriam contributed in those areas, many others stepped up and contributed equally in other areas” stated Coach Charlery. “Still early in the season, we look to keep improving as we take on the VIU Mariners and Camosun Chargers this coming weekend.”
