Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Camille Scherger and Matthew Mancina, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 28 to February 3!
Camille Scherger is a second-year science student fro Lloydminster, Alberta and a goalie on the UPEI Women's Hockey team. Scherger gave up just a single goal in the last three games stopping 64 of 65 shots, as the Panthers defeated Mount Allison and St. Francis Xavier University, but lost 1–0 to Dalhousie University. "Shuggs has been playing with a lot of confidence, strong rebound control, and gives us an opportunity to put points on the board," said coach Bruce Donaldson.
Matthew Mancina is a second-year business student from Windsor, Ontario and a goalie with the UPEI Men's Hockey team. Mancina had a .949 save percentage in the Panthers 4–2 victory over Université de Moncton. "Matthew was very good and made key saves in key moments," said coach Forbes MacPherson. "Early in the game, U de M had a five-on-three penalty plan. There were a couple of big saves, we killed the penalties, and even scored a short-handed goal. It was a big boost, and Matthew was dialled in the rest of the game."
