The Ontario Tech University women’s basketball program has welcomed a new member to its squad.

Kamélya Brodeur has committed to the team for the 2021-22 season.

Head Coach Christa Eniojukan says they are “beyond excited” to have Brodeur join the program.

“She is an elite shooter that I have had to coach against for years,” says Eniojukan. “She was a consistent threat in high school on both St. Laurent High School and Team Quebec. I am now thrilled to have her dynamic shooting with the Ridgebacks.”

From Laval, Quebec, Brodeur joins the Ridgebacks family from Collège Montmorency, where she finished the 2019-20 season with 114 points in 15 games, which included 32 three-pointers, going 12-for-14 from the free-throw line, 14 steals, and 27 assists.

Brodeur was recently named the recipient of the Pierre Marchand award, which honours a person who displays determination and perseverance, despite their hardships while continuing to practice their discipline. She also represented Quebec at the Canada Summer Games, as well as two national basketball championships.

Brodeur is enrolled in the communications and digital media studies program at Ontario Tech.
