Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Kimeshia Henry and Milorad Sedlarevic, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for January 14 to 20!
Kimeshia Henry is a fourth-year science student from Ajax, Ontario and a guard on the UPEI Women's Basketball team. The Panther extended their winning streak over the weekend to 9 games and now sit all alone at the top of the AUS Women's Basketball standings. UPEI Women's Basketball also jumped to the number-ten spot in Canada as ranked by U SPORTS. Henry recorded 10 points, five steals, and 2 assists in the Panthers 74–50 defeat of St. Francis Xavier University and 14 points and 2 steals in the 77–50 win over Dalhousie. "Kimeshia had a great weekend for us at home and has been very consistent in her stellar play all season," said coach Matt Gambliln. "Her skillset and ability to make plays really adds to our offensive firepower."
Milorad Sedlarevic is a fifth-year business student from Jesenice, Slovenia and a forward on the UPEI Men's Basketball team. The Panthers lost to St. Francis Xavier 78–74, and edged out Dalhousie 70–67. "Milorad had his best scoring night as a Panther, dropping 27 points on 5-10 shooting from the three-point line against the Dalhousie Tigers, who are ranked number 7 in the country," said coach Darrell Glenn. "He showed the poise and sharpshooting that this young team is going to need if they have any chance of making the post season."
Go Panthers Go!
