“They say that when you know, you know,” suggested Lo-Ellen Prep Knights' soon-to-be graduating senior guard Bree Bourget.

The older sister to McMaster Marauders’ guard Delaney (Bourget) recently made public her post-secondary destination of choice, signing on with the Queen’s University Gaels in Kingston to start the 2024-2025 OUA campaign.

“When I went on my visit to Queen’s, I just loved it," she said. "I had a really great feeling about it. In terms of basketball and school, it just checked all of my boxes.”

From the standpoint of Gaels’ head coach Claire Meadows, Bourget brings with her some much appreciated flexibility.

“I think my position is transferable,” said the pending U Sport freshman. “Right now, I can play as a one or a two – point guard or shooting guard. In my conversations with the coaching staff, they think they can play me as a combo guard as well.”

And with the decision out of the way before the calendar turns to 2024, Bourget can steer her efforts in the direction of all that is needed to ensure she find herself as a key contributor to her new home away from home.

“I can just keep focusing on my season and improving – this helps to be able to concentrate on that,” said Bourget. “I think I can bring in my shooting ability, my basketball IQ and my overall work ethic. That’s not going to change.”

“But I’m working on getting stronger for the next level.”

And with the bulk of the Gaels starting roster set to move on - the team roster currently shows no less than four six-year athletes - opportunity will be waiting for the young woman cracked the Team Ontario lineup this past summer.
