Tommies Notebook: Athletes of the Week

Oliver Dussault and Bailey Andrews were named the St. Thomas Tommies Coors Light Athletes of the Week for the week of Sept. 12 to 18.
Dussault is a fourth-year wing back on the men’s soccer team, while Andrews is a second-year rugby player.
A news release from the STU athletics department said Dussault hails from St. George, N.B. and played through adversity on Sept. 10 and 11, when the Tommies began their 2016 ACAA campaign.
The release said Dussault’s work ethic and leadership helped the youthful Tommies rebound – at least somewhat – after their 4-0 road loss to the University of Kings College Blue Devils on Sept. 10 and play a better game the following day against the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics.
STU ended up losing 2-0 to MSVU.
The news release said Andrews comes from Charlottetown, P.E.I. and adopted a leadership role in the Tommies’ season opener, which they lost to the University of New Brunswick Ironwomen by a score of 24-5.
The release also said Andrews played the position of scrumhalf – a new one for her – and was named player of the game by the UNB squad.

Information sessions for anyone looking to join the STU track and field team are on Nov. 1 and 2 at 7 p.m. at the J.B. O’Keefe Fitness Centre.
