Stewart and Robison named 'Canes Athletes of the week

Soccer player, Jade Stewart, and men’s baseball player, Luke Robison, have been named the Holland Hurricanes Athletes of the Week for the week ending September 15.

Stewart, a second-year midfielder from Warwick, Bermuda, captained the Hurricanes to a 2-0 weekend with victories over the MSVU Mystics and UKC Blue Devils at home.  This was the Hurricanes first weekend of Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) regular season action for 2019.

On Saturday versus the Mystics, Stewart picked up an assist in the game, while on Sunday versus UKC she recorded one shot on goal.

The Hurricanes currently lead the ACAA standings; they return to the field this Friday evening at 7pm when they host the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus (Dal AC) Rams at the Terry Fox Sports Complex in Cornwall, PEI.

Stewart was also announced as the ACAA female Athlete of the Week earlier this week.  She studies in the Sport and Leisure Management program at Holland College.

Robison, a second-year pitcher/outfielder from Riverview, New Brunswick, led the ‘Canes to a 4-0 start to their 2019 Atlantic Collegiate Baseball Association (ACBA) regular season with two wins each over the Dalhousie University Tigers and University of New Brunswick (UNB) Reds.

In 15 at-bats over the weekend, Robison recorded eight hits, seven of them singles with one triple.  He also picked up seven RBI’s and scored five runs.  On the mound he pitched in relief for one inning, striking out and walking one while allowing no hits or runs against.

The ‘Canes, currently in first place in the ACBA standings, return to action on Saturday when they travel to Halifax, Nova Scotia to take on the Saint Mary’s University (SMU) Huskies.  The team hosts their 2019 home opener on Sunday versus the St. Francis Xavier (St. FX) X-Men at Memorial Field at Victoria Park in Charlottetown.  The action starts at 1pm on both days with the second game of the double-header scheduled to begin at 3:30pm.

Robison is currently enrolled in the Business Administration program at Holland College.
