Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Jenna Mae Ellsworth (Women’s Basketball) and Marcus Power (Men’s Hockey), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for January 30-February 5!
Jenna Mae Ellsworth is a first-year Bachelor of Science student from Charlottetown and a member of the UPEI Women’s Basketball team. Ellsworth played two exceptional games against the University of New Brunswick over the weekend, scoring 33 points, grabbing seven rebounds, and making nine steals. “Jenna Mae helped her Panthers earn a split with UNB,” said coach Greg Gould. “She was our team leader all weekend.”
Marcus Power is a third-year Business student from St. John’s, Newfoundland and a member of the UPEI Men’s Hockey team. Power scored a pair of goals and an assist in a weekend game against Dalhousie University.
“Friday versus Dalhousie was as big a game for us as there can be,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “We needed our big players to rise to the occasion. Marcus stepped up and gave a huge effort for us.”
The Panthers have a busy weekend at home coming up. The Subway AUS Swimming Championship is at the Bell Aliant Centre Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Men’s Hockey plays the Université de Moncton Friday night at 7:00 pm in the MacLauchlan Arena. Women’s Hockey hosts St. Thomas University Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
