CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Caroline Del Santo and Cody Payne are this week’s UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.

Del Santo is a second-year centre on the women’s basketball team had 20 points, 10 rebounds and blocked five shots in 21 minutes of play in a road win against the St. FX X-Women.

“This was Carolina’s best game in a Panther uniform,” said coach Greg Gould. “She was very good on both ends of the court.”

Del Santo is a science student from Barcelona, Spain.

Payne, a second-year forward and a business administration student from Davie, Fla., scored the shootout winner in Friday’s 3-2 win over St. FX. He also scored in regulation and added another in Saturday’s 5-2 loss to Dalhousie.

“Cody had a very strong game in our last game of the first semester,” said coach Forbes McPherson. “We were hoping he would continue that trend heading into the second half. Cody was up to the challenge and provided our team with goals at key times.”
