Men’s basketball player Justin Mitchell has been named Georgian Grizzlies Athlete of the Week after helping lead the Grizzlies to two important wins this past week.

Mitchell, a student in the hospitality management program, had a season high 23 point performance in the Grizzlies win Wednesday night over the George Brown Huskies. He then followed that up with a 12 point performance despite feeling under the weather in the Grizzlies victory over the Canadore Panthers on Sunday.

The Newmarket native currently sits in fourth place on the Grizzlies in scoring averaging 11.6 points per game. The fourth year guard leads the team averaging three assists per game.

Also in consideration for this week’s award was last week’s athlete of the week women’s basketball player Mackenzie Merkley who had 24 points in the Grizzlies win over George Brown, women’s volleyball player Hannah Campbell who had back-to-back team leading point totals in two wins this past weekend and men’s volleyball player Darien Haynes who averaged 14.5 points per game in two games.
