Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Jeremy Thompson (Cross Country) and Holly Jones (Women's Rugby), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for September 12-18!
Jeremy Thompson is a second-year science student from Charlottetown, PEI. He competed this weekend at the Acadia AUS Invitational cross-country meet in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. "Jeremy had a very strong race, and a very good start to the season. I'm pleased for him," said coach Colin MacAdam. Thompson ran a strong race, finishing 13 of 37 runners.
Holly Jones is a fifth-year prop/flanker on the UPEI Women's Rugby team. The Riverview, New Brunswick native had an outstanding game in the Panthers' 54-7 win over SMU. "Holly Jones always has a good game," said coach John LaBoyne. "She led the pack from her loose head prop position. While she scored four tries, she could have had more, but being the great team player she is, 'Jonesy' chose to pass off to others."
