Colin MacAdam, head coach of UPEI’s Cross Country and Track & Field teams, is pleased to announce Nick Robertson will join the Panthers for the 2018–2019 season. Robertson is a middle- and long-distance runner and a recent graduate of Colonel Gray High School in Charlottetown.

“Nick Robertson is a talented cross-country, triathlon, and track and field athlete who has represented Colonel Gray High School and Prince Edward Island for a number of years,” said MacAdam. “Nick was scouted by a number of universities, and we are delighted that he has chosen to attend UPEI. Nick will be a key member of our track and field and cross-country teams. We expect he will be an impact athlete for both programs.”

Robertson took home three first-place finishes at the most recent PEI School Athletic Association (PEISAA) Track & Field Championship, including the 800-meter, 1500-meter, and 3000-meter races. In 2016–2017, he was a member of Team PEI at the Canada Summer Games for the triathlon. He won his category at the 2017–2018 provincial cross-country championship, and placed second at the Atlantic Cross Country Championship.

“I’m really looking forward to continuing my career as a Panther,” said Robertson. “With help from old and new coaches, and my sponsor, I have high hopes of what I can accomplish during my years at UPEI.”

Robertson has been accepted into UPEI’s Faculty of Science and will be majoring in chemistry.

Go Panthers Go!
