Poveda and Martin named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Kai Martin (Toronto) of the men's soccer team. Martin played a strong two-way game on Sunday in the Rams' only game of the week. In a battle of two U SPORTS Top Ten ranked teams, Martin helped the No. 4 Rams earn a 0-0 draw against the No. 5 Carleton Ravens. Martin was mobile and played a complete game, rushing with the forwards on offence while standing strong on the back end.
Maria Poveda (Mississauga, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. The centre midfielder with the women's soccer team had a strong weekend in the middle of the pitch. After registering one of Ryerson's five shots in Saturday's loss, Poveda challenged her teammates to shoot more and the Rams responded on Sunday. Poveda led the charge with four shots and the team tallied 18 in total as Ryerson earned a 0-0 draw against Carleton.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
