Jasmine Baxter of the women’s rugby team and Jarryd Taylor of football team have been named the Subway-Concordia Stingers athletes of the week for the period ending Sept. 9.
Baxter, a rookie outside centre, stood out in Concordia’s 50-25 victory over the Bishop’s Gaiters in Lennoxville, Que. on Sunday. She scored four tries and was the Stingers’ game MVP.
A 17-year-old native of Ajax, Ont., Baxter is an Environmental Science student at Concordia.
Taylor, a third-year wide receiver, caught eight passes for 258 yards to help lead the Concordia Stingers to a dramatic come-from-behind 22-20 victory over the Sherbrooke Vert & Or last Saturday. The 258 yards gives Taylor the fourth best single game performance in conference history. He was named the outstanding football player on offence in the RSEQ last week.
The 20-year-old student from LaSalle, Que. is studying Finance at Concordia.
