CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Sophie Carragher and Nacho Sanchez are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Carragher is a second-year kinesiology student from Stratford and a second-row flanker on the UPEI women’s rugby team. The Panthers beat Saint Mary’s 25-12 on Sunday in Halifax with Carragher scoring a try.
“Sophie had a strong game for us,” said head coach John LaBoyne. “Her line-breaks and speed set the team up for further play down the field. Her try came off a very dominant Panther scrum, Sophie picked from her No. 8 position and dove over the line.”
Sanchez is a fourth-year business administration student from Cornwall and captain of the men’s soccer team. The Panthers dropped a pair of road games during the weekend to Cape Breton and St. FX, but head coach Lewis Page said the midfielder showed leadership on and off the field.
“Nacho Sanchez was excellent in both road games this weekend,” said Page. “His tireless running enabled him to contribute both on the attached and defence with a box-to-box performance.”
