CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Carolina Del Santo and Owen Headrick are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Del Santo, a third-year science student from Barcelona, Spain, and a centre on the women’s basketball team, had 13 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks in the first of two weekend wins over the Saint Mary’s (SMU) Huskies on Friday. The Atlantic University Sport’s reigning defensive player of the year added 13 rebounds, six points, four assists, two blocks and a steal in Saturday’s victory.
“Carolina was pivotal in the team’s two grind-it-out wins versus SMU,” said coach Matt Gamblin. “She was a huge presence inside, blocking shots, but changing many others as well.”
Headrick, a first-year arts student from Garden River, Ont., and a rookie defenceman on the men’s hockey team, had a goal and an assist in Saturday’s 5-3 win over St. FX.
“Owen has been adjusting well to our league,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “He has a steady and calming influence to our defensive core, especially for a first-year player. It is nice to see him get rewarded offensively. He has high-end skill and is a player we will continue to lean on.”
