The Trent University Excalibur Athletes of the Week for the week ending October 1st are women’s rugby prop Kiara Shaw, and men’s lacrosse attack Garret Eddy.
Shaw, a first year Science major, was an absolute wrecking ball for the Excalibur in their 36-32 victory over the Laurier Golden Hawks on Saturday. Not only did she continually make it difficult for the Hawks to penetrate the Excalibur end line, Shaw scored three momentum changing tries! With her outstanding efforts, the Excalibur women’s rugby team now advance to the Ontario University Athletic quarter-finals this Friday, October 7th, at 7pm vs Queens.
Eddy, a fourth year Business major, became a Bishop’s goalies nightmare in the Excalibur’s 16-9 victory Saturday night under the lights with a total of 5 goals, 3 of them coming within four minutes of each other. With that, Eddy broke the 100 point Canadian University Field Lacrosse Association mark and now sits at 104 points (63 goals, 41 assists) in 29 games.
