UPEI announces the Panther Subway Athletes of the Week, February 11 to 17

Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Jane McLaughlin and Milorad Sedlarevic, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for February 11 to 17!

Jane McLaughlin is a fifth-year nursing student from Fortune, PEI and a forward on the UPEI Women's Basketball team. The Panthers won their final two home games of the season over the weekend, completing the first perfect home record for the women in 30 years. McLaughlin notched five points and four rebounds in 20 minutes of play on Saturday's Senior Day win over Acadia University. "Jane had a great weekend for us, specifically helping pull us out of a tough stretch on Friday night with her shooting," said coach Matt Gamblin. "In the bigger sense, Jane has had a great season and a exemplary career with the Panthers. I'm just happy to have been a small part of it in this, her final year of eligibility."

Milorad Sedlarevic is a fifth-year business student from Jesenice, Slovenia and a forward on the UPEI Men's Basketball team. The Panthers split a pair of games against Acadia University over the weekend to close the season. Sedlarevic had an outstanding game Saturday, putting up 25 points, shooting six for seven from the three-point line. He also pulled down a season-high eight rebounds. "On his final night as a Panther at home, in front of the home-town crowd, Mickey pulls off his best performance of the season in a must-win game against Acadia to keep the Panthers' playoff hopes alive," said coach Darrell Glenn. "Mickey is very deserving of high praise. He has an unbelievable work ethic and leads by example in that regard every day at practice."

Go Panthers Go!
