Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Rachel Colle and Mohammad Jaber, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for October 23–29!
Rachel Colle is a third-year forward on the UPEI Women's Hockey team and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Toronto, Ontario. Colle scored a pair of goals in the Panthers 7–2 victory over the weekend against Mount Allison. "It was great to see Rachel break out with two goals on Saturday," said coach Bruce Donaldson. "She's a key offensive contributor for the team."
Mohammad Jaber is a second-year striker on the UPEI Men's Soccer team and a Bachelor of Science student from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Jaber scored a goal over the weekend in the Panthers victory over Dalhousie University, and notched an assist in the tie game with Acadia. "Mohammad played two great games against Acadia and Dalhousie, setting up a goal and scoring one," said coach Lewis Page. "After struggling with injury all season, he is out in full force now."
