April 10, 2014 (ISN) – UPEI Men’s Soccer and Hockey student-athlete Cole MacMillan and Men’s Hockey Coach Forbes MacPherson are finalists for Amateur Sport Awards at the Sport PEI annual awards banquet Friday night at the Rodd Royalty in Charlottetown.
MacMillan, a finalist for the Intercollegiate Male Athlete of the Year, excelled in two sports while achieving CIS Academic All-Canadian status, a truly remarkable achievement. MacMillan was an AUS Men’s Soccer 1st Team All-Star.
MacPherson, a finalist for Coach of the Year, guided the Panthers to a successful 2013 season reaching the semi-finals for the first time in several years. The 4th place finish (32 point 15 wins 11 loss 2 ties) in a very tough AUS Conference was an outstanding achievement and indicator of dedication and efforts of Coach MacPherson.
UPEI Athletics extends best wishes to all award finalists and congratulations on outstanding seasons.
