Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Karla Yepez and Jamesly Jerome, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 1 to 6!
Karla Yepez is a third-year guard and a Faculty of Business student from Quito, Ecuador. The Panthers handed Cape Breton University its first loss of the season in a huge game, grabbing first place in the AUS. Yepez tallied 12 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and a block. "Karla's basketball IQ and play-making ability are second-to-none in the AUS," said coach Matt Gamblin. "She continues to fill up box scores and step up in big moments."
Jamesly Jerome is a first-year forward and Faculty of Arts student from Montreal Quebec. The Panthers dropped a game, 90–70, to Cape Breton University, but Jerome scored an impressive 10 points in 23 minutes of play. He also pulled down 10 rebounds, blocked 2 shots, and made 2 steals. "Jamesley continues to impact our game in a variety of ways, and his development is trending very positively," said coach Darrell Glenn.
Go Panthers Go!
