Assiniboine Community College’s Sherri Bowles has been named the MCAC female Athlete of the Week. The first year Business Administration student and hockey player accomplished quite an amazing feat on Friday, January 23. Bowles scored a hat trick in the first two periods of the lady-Cougars’ 16-1 drubbing of the Strathclair Women’s Hockey Club. Not at all a disregardable accomplishment on it’s own, but Bowles went on to strap on the pads and tend the goal for the third period.
“She’s a very strong and aggressive type player,” said interim head coach Larry Shannon of the 18 year-old former midget team Manitoba member.
The ACC women’s hockey team will continue their exhibition season on Friday, February 13 against the Twisted Sistaz Women’s Hockey Club at 7:00 p.m. at the Brandon Sportsplex.
