CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Jenna Mae Ellsworth and Cody Payne are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Ellsworth is a third-year science student from Charlottetown and a guard on the UPEI women’s basketball team. The Panthers downed UNB 76–64 Saturday with Ellsworth having 28 points, three rebounds, and two assists.
“Jenna Mae had a strong effort to help the team close first semester on a high note,” said coach Matt Gamblin. “She not only scored the ball, but also made great decisions and forced turnovers with her defence as well.”
Payne is a third-year business student from Davie, Fla., and a forward on the UPEI men’s hockey team. The Panthers defeated Acadia 4-1 and Saint Mary’s 4-3 with Payne scoring a pair of goals in each game.
“Cody started to focus on the little things in practice and in games which got him more involved and in better scoring positions,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “His natural ability took over after that.”
