Stingers women's basketball takes home three RSEQ honours

Three Concordia Stingers women's basketball players were among the honourees when the RSEQ announced its all-stars and top rookies on Thursday evening.

Fourth-year guard Areej Burgonio was named to the conference’s first all-star team. She is the top scorer on the Stingers with an average of 18.8 points a game. She ranks second in conference scoring.

Burgonio played an average of 38.1 minutes in 16 regular season games. She also impressed with 5.6 assists and 1.9 steals which ranks second in the RSEQ.

This is the second league honour for the Sociology student from Toronto. She was named to the all-rookie team in 2019.

Two Stingers were named to this year’s all-rookie squad – guard Rowena Blais and forward Angela Batrla.

Blais started 15 of 16 games in her first season and averaged 34.1 minutes. She had 7.9 points, 3.1 assists and 1.8 steals a game.

Originally from Welland, Ont., she is a Psychology major at the university.

Batrla, a former Dawson College standout, joined the Stingers in January and made a big difference immediately. Playing in 10 games, she ended up being the third best Concordia scorer with 10.5 points and 6.4 rebounds.

The Montrealer is majoring in Child Studies at Concordia.

The league honours were presented before the RSEQ semifinal games on Thursday night.
