Giles and Fernandes Named Excalibur Athletes of the Week

The Trent University Excalibur Athletes of the Week for the week ending October 9th are women’s soccer striker Hailey Giles, and men’s lacrosse attack Jeff Fernandes.

Giles, a 4th year Biology major, brought her studies to the field this past weekend as she continually dissected the opponents defense with petri dish placed passes and cytolysis like shots, as her team went on to a 3-1 win over Nipissing, and a 1-1 draw against Laurentian. In the 2 games, Giles had 3 points (1G, 2A) with 4 shots on goal!

Fernandes, a 4th year Communications major, let his hands do the talking as he broke out with 12 points (6G, 6A) in the Excalibur’s two weekend victories over Carleton and Bishops. He now sits at 26 points (13G, 13A) in 7 games this season!
