Lapadula and Hemati named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Arya Hemati (Vaughan, Ont.) of the men's soccer team. The third year midfielder scored a crucial goal for the Rams in highlight fashion during their 3-1 win over No. 10 ranked Toronto this weekend. In the 57th minute, Hemati stood over a free kick just outside of the 18-yard box and rifled a strike over the defensive wall and into the top right corner. The goal was the third of the game, giving Ryerson some insurance to bring home the win. Hemati also had four shots in the Rams' first game of the week, a 2-0 win over Trent.
Elisa Lapadula (Brampton, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. The fourth year goalkeeper with the women's soccer team stopped a penalty kick and added two other saves in the Rams' only game of the week. Lapadula's 0.850 save percentage so far this season has her ranked sixth in the OUA.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
