Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes two student-athletes for their hard work and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Megan Sullivan and Samy Mohamed, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for November 20–26!

Megan Sullivan is a fourth-year Bachelor of Science student from Bathurst, New Brunswick and a goalie on the UPEI Women’s Hockey team. The team split a couple of games over the weekend, beating Dalhousie University 3–2 and losing to Saint Thomas University 3–2 in overtime. Sullivan stopped 48 of 53 shots over the weekend, posting a save percentage of 90.7.

“Megan played very well this weekend, making a few big saves when we needed them,” said coach Bruce Donaldson. “Megan had a great week of practice and, along with the entire team, felt confident going into the weekend. We ask our goalies to give the team an opportunity to win, and that means making some key saves at critical times. Megan did just that, and we earned 3 out of 4 possible points.”

Samy Mohamed is a fifth-year guard on the UPEI Men’s Basketball team and a Bachelor of Business Administration student from Scarborough, Ontario. The team lost 88–78 to Acadia University over the weekend, but Mohamed scored 18 points, grabbed two rebounds, and made three assists.

“Samy’s potential to impact the entire game was on full display Saturday night,” said coach Darrell Glenn. “Our team is getting better, and we will rely heavily on Samy’s consistent contributions moving forward.”
