Olyvia Faille of the women's rugby team and Kevin Foster of the football team have been named the Subway-Concordia Stingers athletes of the week for the period ending Sept. 1.
Faille, a third-year back, stood out in Concordia’s home-opener on Sunday afternoon. She scored three tries and was named the Stingers’ player of the game in a 43-12 victory over the Montréal Carabins.

A rookie running back and return specialist, Foster was exceptional in his team’s difficult 40-14 loss to McGill University last Friday afternoon. He had 222 total yards on returns in the game.

He was also named the RSEQ Special Teams Player of the Week.
