Who: Ferran Brown, Women’s Hockey; and Reggie Traccitto, Men’s Hockey

What: UPEI Panther Athletes of the Week

When: Week of February 10–16

Why: Ferran Brown, a fourth-year arts student from Calgary, Alberta, has been leading the women’s hockey program on-and-off the ice all year. The team captain continued her strong play during the Panthers 1-0 win over Mount Allison on Friday night, where her work ethic set the tone for the team during the game. Brown is also dedicated to community outreach; over the past few months, she has completed three separate fundraisers raising more than $2,000 for various community organizations.

Reggie Traccitto, a fourth-year arts student from Oakville, Ontario continues to have a strong season leading the Panthers into the AUS quarterfinals. Over the weekend, Traccitto contributed two goals in the Panthers 4-1 win over Saint Francis Xavier on Saturday, and played a strong game in the Panthers 5-2 loss to Saint Mary’s on Friday.

Brown and Traccitto will be recognized at this week’s UPEI Athletes of the Week Celebration on Thursday, February 20 at 12:45 pm in the W.A. Murphy Student Centre’s McMillan Hall. All are welcome.
