Holly Jones, Women’s Rugby

A second-year Bachelor of Science, dual student-athlete from Riverview, NB, Holly Jones is in her second year of eligibility. Jones, playing at the Prop/Flanker positions, was all over the field making important hits during the Panthers game vs. the CIS fifth-ranked Acadia Axewomen this past Saturday. Holly’s play kept the game tight, and she also tore straight through Acadia to score the Panthers only try of the game.

Brian Ofori had his best weekend to date as a UPEI Panther. The second-year Arts student from Montreal, Quebec, was a force on the court during the Panthers’ exhibition wins over Holland College and Mount Allison. Ofori scored 35 points and hauled down 15 rebounds and 5 blocked shots.
