Shawna Brayton of the women's rugby team and Yacine Ait Slimane of the men's soccer team have been named the Subway-Concordia Stingers athletes of the week for the period ending Sept. 15.
Brayton, a third-year forward, stood out in Concordia’s 36-29 victory over the Montréal Carabins last Friday night. She connected on four converts and a penalty kick for 11 points and was named the game MVP. The Stingers now have a perfect 3-0 win-loss record to start the season.
A 22-year-old native of Châteauguay, Que., Brayton is an Accounting student at Concordia.
A third-year midfielder, Ait Slimane was exceptional in his team’s two games last week, helping the Stingers pick up a win and a tie. He scored a goal in a 3-0 victory over the Sherbrooke Vert & Or on the road last Friday. He picked up his second goal of the weekend in a 2-2 tie with McGill University on Sunday at Concordia Stadium.
The 24-year-old student from St. Constant, Que. is studying Accounting at the John Molson School of Business.
