Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Rachel Colle and Filip Rydstrom, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for November 26 to December 2.
Rachel Colle is a fourth-year business student from Toronto, Ontario and a forward on the UPEI Women's Hockey team. The Panthers split a pair of games over the weekend, beating Dalhousie University 2–1 and losing to the University of New Brunswick 3–1. "Rachel's weekend personified her first half," said coach Bruce Donaldson. "She worked hard, played a regular shift and power play, and helped the penalty kill go 11/12. Rachel leads with character, and by example, she is a very important player for us."
Filip Rydstrom is a second-year arts student from Stockholm, Sweden and a forward on the UPEI Men's Hockey team. Rydstrom scored a goal and notched a pair of assists over the weekend as the Panthers dropped a game to Acadia University 5–2 and beat Saint Mary's University 4–3. "Filip had another great week," said coach Forbes McPherson. "He has been a much improved player over last season. Filip is very driven every single day, and it is paying off on the weekends!"
Go Panthers Go!
