Alyssa Ferguson and Filip Rydstrom

Every week, UPEI Athletics and Recreation recognizes student athletes for their achievements and dedication to their respective sports. Congratulations to Alyssa Ferguson and Filip Rydstrom, the UPEI Panther Subway Athletes of the Week for October 22 to 28.

Alyssa Ferguson is a fourth-year business student from Murray River, PEI and a forward on the UPEI Field Hockey team. The Panthers won the Atlantic University Field Hockey Championship over the weekend. Ferguson was a big part of that win and was named an AUFH League All-Star. “Alyssa had a great weekend and great season for us,” said coach Lacey MacLauchlan. “She scored six goals this weekend, along with the winning goal in the championship game just two minutes into the game. She used her strength and speed to her advantage all weekend and was a scoring threat. She was also able to create many scoring opportunities and move the ball up the field well for her teammates.”

Filip Rydstrom is a second-year arts student from Stockholm, Sweden and a centre on the UPEI Men’s Hockey team. The Panthers lost their first game of the weekend to UNB, but came back in a big way for an 8–3 win over Acadian University. Rydstrom notched four goals and an assist against Acadia and was selected player of the game. “Filip has taken his game to a new level this year,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “He has been a different and better player from day one. Saturday night, he was rewarded with a huge effort on the score sheet.”

Go Panthers Go!
