This week’s WQAQ Athlete of the Week honor goes to Quinnipiac University women’s ice hockey freshman Heather Hughes (Stoufville, Ontario).
Hughes had a career game on Saturday night with her first collegiate hat trick on her way to four points against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She scored Quinnipiac’s second, third, and fifth goals of the game as well as assisting on the fourth as the Bobcats defeated RPI 6-1. With her performance, Hughes now leads the team in goals and points.
The Bobcats women’s hockey team had a banner weekend in its own right by defeating Union 3-0 in addition to Saturday’s victory. They will now head on a four game road trip beginning this weekend with Harvard and Dartmouth.
