Meet a few of King's student-athletes

Neely Johnston Softball
From Stratford, Prince Edward Island, first-year student Neely chose King’s because of our excellent Criminology and Sociology programs. Neely is a pitcher for the Western Mustangs’ softball team, which won the silver medal in the 2023 Ontario University Softball (OUS) Provincial championships in Paris, Ontario. Being a King’s student-athlete has allowed her to meet people both at King’s and on the Western campus. “I get to interact with lots of people from different backgrounds and it has made me open a lot more as a person.”


Noah Otshudi – Basketball
Noah is a second-year Psychology student and Western Mustangs Men’s Basketball player. “My team and I have put in hundreds of hours of hard work and dedication this season,” says Noah, who adds that his first two years on the team have been a great learning experience. Noah says he came to King’s because of the welcoming community and inclusivity. He finds that King’s faculty understand the commitment it takes to be a student-athlete and are very accommodating and supportive. 


Brooke Vaccari – Hockey
First-year Criminology student Brooke Vaccari was named as one of the Western Mustangs Athletes of the Week for the week ending January 7, 2024. Brooke, a goalie for the Western Mustang's Women's Hockey team, got the shutout win against the Windsor Lancers, a game in which she registered 20 saves in a 1-0 victory for the Mustangs. Brooke says that playing Mustang hockey is a lot of fun and very competitive. As a student-athlete, she loves being able to represent King’s. About King’s, she says, “I like the small community and having wonderful staff."
