Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Carolina Del Santo and Gabe Guertler, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 7 to 13!
Carolina Del Santo is a third-year science student from Barcelona, Spain and a centre on the UPEI Women's Basketball team. The Panthers swept Saint Mary's University in two games over the weekend, extending its winning streak to seven and holding onto the first place in the AUS. Del Santo scored back-to-back double doubles, scoring 11 points and 14 rebounds in the first game, and 20 points and 18 rebounds in the second. "Carolina had a great weekend for us," said coach Matt Gamblin. "She has great anticipation defensively and instincts for rebounding. With her constantly improving offensive game, she is really developing into a complete player."
Gabe Guertler is a fourth-year business student from Plantation, Florida and a forward on the UPEI Men's Hockey team. The Panthers lost to St. Francis Xavier 6 to 3 Friday, but defeated Dalhousie University the following night 5 to 3. Guertler scored a natural hat trick in the win against Dalhousie and was selected Subway Player of the Game. "Gabe brought a different compete level and intensity to his game against Dalhousie," said coach Forbes MacPherson. "He was rewarded for his efforts with three goals."
Go Panthers Go!
