Two VIU Mariners named PACWEST Athletes of the week !!
Female Soccer Athlete of the Week
Chloe Gummer – VIU Mariners
Playing her first game in the PACWEST against the defending conference champion Douglas College Royals, Gummer would get a dream start to her varsity career, scoring three goals for her Mariners. She was a constant threat playing in the striker position and in all facets of the game. Then on Sunday Gummer was instrumental in the Mariners first goal using her “soccer IQ” to clear a lane for Rachel Jones to score.
Male Golf Athlete of the Week
Dallas Jones – VIU Mariners
Dallas shot a tournament low 139 this past weekend at Ledgeview Golf Club in Abbotsford as the PACWEST golf season opened.. He was the only player in the field to finish under par for the 36 holes shooting a 68 on Saturday and 71 on Sunday. Dallas led all Mariners in birdies collecting eight and greens in regulation with 31. A good combination of proper tee shots, club selections and a high level of execution allowed Dallas to have a successful weekend.
