Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Tatiana Kelly and Dan Maguire, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for October 21 to 27.
Kelly is a second-year runner on the UPEI women's cross country team and a science major from Stratford, PEI. She had a strong race at the AUS Championships held over the weekend at Université de Moncton, finishing 29th overall. "Tatiana is extremely talented," said coach Mike Peterson. "It would have been very interesting to see where she ended up if not for a 2-1/2 week stretch where she had to manage a significant injury. Her finish on Saturday is impressive, but her best results are still to come."
Maguire is a fourth-year runner on the men's cross country team and an AVC student from St. George's, Bermuda. He also ran a strong race at the 2019 AUS Championships, coming in 29th. "Dan has been a leader on the team all season long," said Peterson. "He pushes people in workouts to do what needs to be done to be successful. He really went for it on Saturday and should be proud of cracking the top 30 in a strong field."
Go Panthers Go!
