Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Cranston, Boutwell players of the month

For the first time in their careers, Kaela Cranston and Dan Boutwell have been named athletes of the month by the Brandon University Bobcats.

Cranston, a third-year guard with BU’s women’s basketball team, had a solid January that was highlighted by her career-high 25-point night on Jan. 11 as the Bobcats won their first home game in over three years. The 5-foot-11 Winnipegger added a 23-point night in the month and finished January with 88 points and 40 rebounds.

“It’s an accomplishment to finally have my hard work pay off and showing,” said Cranston, whose team went 3-4 in January. “The highlight of January was all the wins for the team.”

Meanwhile, Boutwell, a fifth-year middle with the BU men’s volleyball team, posted 53 kills and was involved in 27 blocks in January as his squad went 2-5 but stayed in the battle for a playoff spot in the Canada West conference.

Brandon’s captain, who will graduate after this season, is fourth in the country with 86 blocks this season and is happy to be recognized a few days before his last regular season wraps up.

“It’s nice to end things with a bang,” Boutwell said.

The BU basketball teams are home to Lethbridge on Friday and Saturday. The volleyball teams are off to Calgary.

Dan is also the current record holder in Canada West for the most blocks in the playoffs. The record was set in 2010-11 when BU won the national silver medal. Dan had 41 blocks that year in the playoffs and the the 2 highest record holder is 28 blocks in the 2006-7 playoffs so it looks like the record could stand for a while.
