Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Bailey Smith and Sam Aulie, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for February 4 to 10!
Bailey Smith is a third-year nursing student from Mount Stewart, PEI and a sprinter on the UPEI Track and Field team. Smith set a new personal best in the 60-meter dash at the Saint Mary's University Open Indoor Track and Field Meet over the weekend with a time of 7.48 seconds. Smith automatically qualifies for the U SPORTS championship meet.
"Bailey had a great race, and she put herself in a strong position for the U SPORTS Championships in March," said coach Colin MacAdam. "7.48 seconds is the second-fastest time in U SPORTS this year and one of the fastest ever in the AU—a fantastic run!"
Sam Aulie is a fourth-year business student from Lumsden, Saskatchewan and a forward on the UPEI Men's Hockey team. Aulie picked up a goal and an assist in each of the Panthers final two games of the season, as UPEI defeated Dalhousie University and St. Francis Xavier University.
"Sam had a great weekend, leading our team with a goal and an assist in each game," said coach Forbes MacPherson. "We needed to capture all four points in order to secure home-ice advantage in the first round of play-offs. Sam's efforts were a big part in that success."
Go Panthers Go!
