Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Kiera Rigby and Amin Suleman, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 8-14!
Kiera Rigby is a fifth-year forward on the UPEI Women's Basketball team and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) student from Charlottetown. The Panthers split a pair of games against Saint Mary's University over the weekend. Rigby scored an incredible 26 points in Friday night's win, shooting 47% from the field. "She went 66% from the 3-point line and was 8 for 12 from the free-throw line," said coach Greg Gould. "Kiera also had three rebounds and a blocked shot. On Saturday, she scored 21 points, shooting 40% from the field and 80% from the free-throw line while collecting three rebounds."
