Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Jane McLaughlin (Women’s Basketball) and JC Campagna (Men’s Hockey), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for January 2-8!
Jane McLaughlin is a third-year forward on the Women’s Basketball team from Fortune, PEI. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing student scored 25 points in the Panthers recent 88-74 win over Dalhousie University. McLaughlin shot a phenomenal 67% from the field, including sinking eight of twelve three-point attempts. She also had eight rebounds, four assists, and two steals. “Jane’s toughness and leadership was outstanding,” said coach Greg Gould. “She made all of her teammates better.”
JC Campagna is a third-year forward on the Men’s Hockey team. The Bachelor of Arts student from Dublin, Ohio scored a goal and three assists in the Panthers’ two most recent games against Dalhousie University and St. Francis Xavier University. “JC, Beau (McCue), and Gabe (Guertler) showed some chemistry early as a line,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “There was a lot of heart from that group, and JC was rewarded by contributing on the score sheet.”
The Panthers have just one game at home this week when Men’s Hockey plays a make-up game Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm against the Saint Mary’s University Huskies (rescheduled from December 1). Find more details at gopanthersgo.ca.
