Crow and Coré named McGill athletes of the week


Published: 21Sep2009


MONTREAL - Alastair Crow of Victoria, B.C., and Melissa Coré, of Beaconsfield, Que., are the McGill University athletes of the week for the period ending Sept. 20.


Crow, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound fly-half with the men's rugby team, scored 27 points (one short of his own team record) as McGill overwhelmed Bishop's 57-5 in Lennoxville, Que., last Sunday. The 21-year-old physiology junior tallied three tries for 15 points and converted six others in the contest. Crow, who took a sabbatical from school last year to play with the Canadian national program, joined the Redmen in 2006 out of St. Michael's University School in Victoria.


Coré won the second Quebec university golf tournament of the season at Le Marthelinois in Trois-Rivières, Que., over the weekend, which helped the Martlets register their first-ever tourney team title.


The 23-year-old post-graduate student in management shot rounds of 81 and 78 to beat out UQAM's Karine Desroches by two strokes. Coré, a 2008 graduate of UBC, previously attended John Abbott College.
