Charlottetown, PEI (November 22, 2017)—Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Jenna Mae Ellsworth and Moshe Wadley, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for November 13–19!
Jenna Mae Ellsworth is a second-year guard on the UPEI Women's Basketball team and a Bachelor of Science student from Charlottetown. The Panthers dropped a pair of games over the weekend to Cape Breton University, but Ellsworth shone, averaging 23 points per game, shooting43% from the field, 43% from beyond the three-point line, and a perfect 100% from the foul line. She also averaged two rebounds, two assists, and two steals. "Jenna Mae had an outstanding offensive weekend against CBU while holding her mark to an average of four points per game defensively," said coach Greg Gould.
Moshe Wadley is a first-year guard on the UPEI Men's Basketball team and a Bachelor of Business Administration student fro Toronto, Ontario. The team lost back-to-back games against Cape Breton University, but coach Darrell Glenn liked what he saw in his first year guard. "Moshe plays above the rim," said Glenn. "At 5'10", Moshe pulled down a game-high twelve rebounds in our second game against CBU. Rebounding is one of those selfless skills that separates a competitor from an average player. Moshe stepped up his desire to win when we needed it most."
