Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Caroline Del Santo and Cody Payne, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 1–7!
Cody Payne is a second-year forward on the UPEI Men’s Hockey team and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Davie, Florida. The Panthers beat St. FX 3–2 in an exciting game over the weekend, ending in a shootout, but fell the following night 5–2 to Dalhousie. Payne scored three goals over the two games, including the shootout winner. “Cody had a very strong game in our last game of the first semester,” said coach Forbes McPherson. “We were hoping he would continue that trend heading into the second half. Cody was up to the challenge and provided our team with goals at key times.”
UPEI students get into all Panther home games for free. Let’s fill the stands and make this the best season ever!
