Carter Awarded Record 4th Straight Defensive POY
THUNDER BAY, ON -
The OUA announced their major award winners earlier today at the Championship Breakfast. 

Lakehead's 5th year senior Greg Carter (Ottawa, ON) was awarded the OUA West's Defensive Player of the Year for a record-breaking 4th consecutive season. Other major award winners are listed below.

Last season the Ottawa native was awarded the CIS Defensive Player of the Year honour, marking the first time a Lakehead athlete has won the award since the award's inception in 2005. The Thunderwolves’ guard helped lead Lakehead to the best defence in the OUA West, surrendering just 68.5 points per game. He finished second in OUA with 45 steals for an average of 2.1 steals per game.

Carter hopes to lead his team to a 4th consecutive CIS Final 8 tournament, with his team's fate hanging in the balance this weekend at the Wilson Cup Final Four. The top 3 teams from the Wilson Cup tournament will advance. Lakehaed takes on Carleton this evening, and Ottawa or Windsor tomorrow.
