MONTREAL -- Brianna Miller of Pte. Claire, Que., and Alexander King of Detroit, Mich., are the McGill University athletes of the week, sponsored by Ye Old Orchard Pub, for the period ending Sept. 18, 2011.
Miller, a 5-foot-5 fly-half on the women's rugby team, celebrated her 20th birthday on Sunday by scoring 23 points as McGill blanked Ottawa 38-0 at McKewen Field in Ste. Anne de Bellevue, Que. The 20-year-old physical education sophomore scored three tries and added four conversions. Miller joined the Martlets last year after graduating from John Abbott College.
King, a 5-foot-11, 150-pound forward on the Redmen soccer team, came off the bench in the second half on Sunday, to score twice - including the game-winner - and added an assist as 10th-ranked McGill rallied from a two-goal deficit to upset No.3-ranked Laval 3-2 at Quebec City. The 19-year-old environmental biology sophomore is a product of Cranbrook Kingswood high school in Detroit.
Both athletes will receive a gift certificate from Ye Old Orchard Pub.
