Jenna Mae Ellsworth and Kameron Kielly

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 Kameron Kielly (men’s hockey), the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the week for October 2-8!

Jenna Mae Ellsworth is a second-year guard on the UPEI Women’s Basketball team and a Bachelor of Science student from Charlottetown. She was named to the tournament all-star team for the Concordia Classic, held over the weekend in Montreal. She also averaged 20 points, six rebounds, four assists, and three steals over three games. “Jenna Mae picked up the start of the 2017 season where she left off last year,” said coach Greg Gould, after the team’s second-place finish in Montreal. “She was our team’s leading scorer and best defender in our three wins in Montreal on the weekend. Her on-court leadership makes our team go.”

Kameron Kielly is a first-year forward on the UPEI Men’s Hockey team, and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Charlottetown. The team lost its home-opener over the weekend to the University of New Brunswick, but snatched an overtime win the next day over the Université de Moncton. Kieslly shone in both games, notching a pair of goals and five assists. “Even though Kam was battling illness and had only practiced with our group a couple of times, he had an immediate impact with our group and in this league,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “There seemed to be instant chemistry with Power and Ashley, and between the three of them, they were in on almost all of the goals this past weekend. Great start for this group as a line, and for Kam individually.”
