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 Darcy Ashley, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 29–February 4!
Rachel Colle is a third-year forward on the UPEI Women's Hockey team and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Toronto, Ontario. The Panthers won back-to-back games over the weekend, defeating St. Thomas University 2–1 and Mount Allison 4–1. "Rachel had a very strong weekend for us. She scored the shootout winner against STU on Friday night and a goal and assist in our victory over Mount A," said coach Bruce Donaldson. "Rachel logged a ton of time in both games, especially during the STU game, playing a regular shift and on both the power play and penalty kill."
Darcy Ashley is a fourth-year forward on the UPEI Men's Hockey team and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Brooklyn, PEI. The Panthers split a pair of games over the weekend, beating Acadia University 6–3 and losing to Saint Mary's University 9–1. "Darcy's playing strong hockey for us," said coach Forbes MacPherson. "He scored two goals in our Acadia win Friday night. He wears his heart on his sleeve and competes every night. Even in Saturday's loss to Saint Mary's, he was competing every shift."
And don't forget! UPEI students get into all Panther home games for free. Let's fill the stands and make this the best season ever!
