Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes student athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations Jenna Mae Ellsworth and Amin Suleman, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for October 1–7.
Jenna Mae Ellsworth is a third-year science student from Charlottetown and a guard on the UPEI Women's Basketball team. The Panthers recently competed in the Concordia Classic, notching wins against Laurentian University and Memorial University, and dropping a game to the hosts. Ellsworth averaged 19 points per game, including a 25-point, five-rebound, five-steal performance in the Panthers win over MUN. "Jenna Mae had a great weekend for us in Montreal, Jenna Mae had a strong weekend for us," said coach Matt Gamlin of Ellsworth. "She was a leader on the court in all three games. I'm very excited to see our continued development as we prepare for the start of the regular season."
Amin Suleman is a fourth-year arts student from Toronto, Ontario and a guard on the UPEI Men's Basketball team. The Panthers just returned from an exhibition road trip in Ontario, including a showing at the Brock RBC Classic. Suleman tallied 15 points, seven rebounds, and five assists in the Panthers 78–61 loss to Brock University. "Amin showed lots of leadership throughout the weekend, not just his play on the court, but off it, too," said coach Darrell Glenn.
Go Panthers Go!
