Acadia adds to impressive class with pair of recruits

The Axemen already have landed several high-quality recruits in 6'6" Owen Klassen, a power forward from Kingston, ON; 6'4" combination guard Anthony Sears, who scored over 1,100 points as a New Brunswick high school senior (~30 ppg) and a hidden gem in 6'5" French import Jonathan Kamba. And with 6'3" Casey Fox and 6'5" Justin Boutilier, the Axemen have two sophomores who could push for all-AUS status in the coming seasons.

Acadia now features a growing stable of youthful potential stars and with his two latest recruits Coach Steve Baur augments his younger group with a pair of experienced veterans in Andre Grant, a 5th year transfer from Memorial who began his career here at Acadia (8.3 ppg in 2003-04) and last played in 2005-06 when he averaged 13 ppg for the Seahawks plus Tyler Lutton, a 3rd year guard from Douglas College, who ran the point for Douglas two seasons ago when they won the CCAA national championship.

Acadia will participate in the Naismith tournament Oct17-19 @ Waterloo and then will host York and RMC later in October. The remainder of the Axemen pre-season will consist of games against Atlantic college teams. Acadia is seeking to return to the AUS playoffs after missing the post-season in 2008-09.
