EDMONTON – The third-year forward produced a monster multi-cat opening weekend at both ends of the court for the Griffins, recording a combined 33 points, 12 rebounds, 14 steals and four blocks in a two-game split with Mount Royal University.

Her 14 combined steals matches the MacEwan University record for the most in a two-game weekend of play since the Griffins joined Canada West in 2014 (previously established by Kendall Lydon, also against MRU in November 2016).

On Friday, Farmer had a game-high 19 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the field, adding five more points off free throws as the Griffins beat the Cougars 65-53.

On Saturday, Farmer scored 14 points on 5-for13 shooting, adding four more from the charity stripe as MacEwan lost 62-58 to MRU.

Farmer currently leads Canada West in steals/game (7.0), is tied for the lead in blocks/game (2.0) and sits in the top 10 in points/game (16.5).

She leads the Griffins into road action against Saskatchewan on Friday and Saturday in Saskatoon.
