UPEI Panthers captain Ferran Brown has been recognized for her academics, athletics and community involvement.
The fourth-year forward is the first Panther to win the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) women’s hockey conference’s student-athlete community service award since the award’s inception in 2002-03.
Brown, the team’s first captain not from P.E.I., had three goals and eight assists in 24 games this season for the Panthers.
Brown’s community involvement on the Island included hosting two food drives in December. The drives raised more than $500 and $300 in cash donations and collected about 300 pounds of food for two Island food banks.
She organized and hosted pink at the rink events where the men’s and women’s hockey teams wore pink and black jerseys. The hockey programs raised $1,144.45 to be donated to the local chapter of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Brown will now represent the conference for the Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s (CIS) Marion Hilliard Award.
Panthers’ defenceman Keirstin Visser was also named a second-team all-star. The fourth-year blue-liner from Crapaud had a goal and five assists in 24 games this year.
The second team also included Emily van Diepen, a third-year defenceman from Morell, who had four goals and six assists for the Mount Allison Mounties.
UPEI’s Emma Martin, a Winsloe resident, was named to the all-rookie team. The smooth-skating defenceman had three goals and three assists in 24 games.
She was joined by fellow Islander Nicole Corcoran, a blue-liner from Piusville, who plays for St. F.X. Corcoran was tied for third in defenceman scoring in the conference with three goals and seven assists in 24 games.
