Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Kelly Green (women's soccer) and Brett Strba (men's soccer), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for September 25 to October 1!
Kelly Green is a third-year centre-back on the UPEI Women's Soccer team,and a Bachelor of Science student from Charlottetown. Over the weekend, the Panthers beat Saint Mary's University and lost to a very strong Cape Breton University squad. "Kelly is consistently coming out on top, winning the one-on-one battles," said coach Graeme McDonald. "She has been outstanding defensively over the last two games, gives 100 per cent every game, and leads by example every time she wears the Panther jersey."
Brett Strba is a third-year keeper on the UPEI Men's Soccer team, and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Windsor Junction, Nova Scotia. The team lost a pair of games over the weekend to SMU and CBU, but Strba was outstanding in between the posts. "On Friday versus SMU, Brett was excellent, despite just returning from injury," said coach Lewis Page. "On Sunday, Brett made a number of crucial saves, including a penalty-kick save, as the Panthers played a tight game against the league-leading Capers."
