Maria Manarolis, Olivier Simon - Athletes of the Week

Maria Manarolis of the women's hockey team and Olivier Simon of the men's basketball team have been named the Subway-Concordia Stingers athletes of the week for the period ending Nov. 28, 2021.

Last Friday, Manarolis scored a goal in a tough 6-5 loss to the Montréal Carabins. Two days later she collected four goals in a 9-0 victory over the Carleton Ravens.

A 23-year-old resident of Laval, Que., Manarolis is enrolled in Concordia’s Teaching English as a Second Language program.

Simon, a senior forward, made his presence known in the final league game before the holiday break. He had 23 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks to lead his team to a 62-44 win over the UQAM Citadins on Saturday. He is currently leading the Stingers in scoring with an average of 18.5 points a game.

The 25-year-old student from Terrebonne, Que. is working on a graduate diploma in Business Administration.
