UPEI announces the Panther Subway Athletes of the Week, October 8–14

Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes student athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Danielle Younker and Jack MacAulay, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for October 8–14.

Danielle Younker is a fourth-year science student from Charlottetown and a left-back on the UPEI Women's Soccer team. The Panthers tied St. Francis Xavier over the weekend, and Younker was named Subway Player of the Game. "Danielle put on a fantastic defensive display and scored a terrific goal from 40 yards out," said coach Graeme McDonald.

Jack MacAulay is a third-year business student from Charlottetown and a guard on the UPEI Men's Basketball team. The Panthers hosted the Mickey Place Memorial Basketball Tournament over the weekend, dropping a game a piece to the University of Regina and McMaster University, and beating Humber College. MacAulay scored 41 points over three games and shot 65% from the three-point line. "Jack's a pure shooter and an important player for us, it was great to see him have a successful weekend," said coach Darrell Glenn.

Go Panthers Go!
