Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Amy Hickey (women’s rugby) and Mon San Aung (men’s soccer), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for September 18–24!

Amy Hickey is a fifth-year flanker on the UPEI Women’s Rugby team and a Bachelor of Arts student from Summerville, New Brunswick. The Panthers smashed Saint Mary’s University Saturday in a 43–14 game.

Amy was a defensive standout for us on Saturday versus Saint Mary’s,” said coach John LaBoyne. “She competed at a very high level with many tackles and a highlight try.”

Mon San Aung is a second-year Bachelor of Arts student from Charlottetown and a member of the UPEI Men’s Soccer team. The Panthers split a pair of games this weekend, beating Saint Mary’s 3–2 on Saturday, and losing 1–0 to the University of New Brunswick on Sunday.

“Mon San came off the bench and provided the spark of energy and the winning goal versus Saint Mary’s that we needed,” said coach Lewis Page.
