Lalonde and Santos named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Mathew Santos (Toronto) of the men's hockey team. Santos continued his hot start to the season this week with six points in two games. On Friday he recorded two assists in the Rams' 4-3 win over UOIT before scoring once and added three assists on Saturday. Against Concordia, Santos was in on all four of the Rams' goals. With his performance Santos now sits second in the OUA scoring race, behind only his teammate, Matt Mistele.
Madison Lalonde (Blenheim, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. On the women's hockey team's first road trip of the season, Lalonde scored three goals to help the Rams stay unbeaten to start the year. Lalonde scored the game-winning goal against No. 9 ranked Nipissing on Friday with a slapshot to the top corner, and then added an empty net goal to secure the victory. The next afternoon, Lalonde scored in overtime on a breakaway with a deke to her backhand before roofing her shot to give the Rams the win. Her performance was also impressive on the defensive side of the puck, helping the Ryerson penalty kill unit go 10-for-11.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
