Hornquist, Feakes players of the week

Women's basketball player Sam Hornquist captured the Pronghorn Female Athlete of the Week award after helping the Horns to a weekend split in Canada West women's basketball play.

Hornquist, a first-year guard from Fernie, B.C., led the way offensively for the Horns as they headed west for a pair of road games against Pacific division teams.

In Friday's 80-69 upset of the 2008 CIS Champion UBC Thunderbirds, Hornquist scored 10 points and grabbed three rebounds. She also collected three assists and added two steals. She followed that up with a 15-point effort in a 78-51 loss to the CIS sixth-ranked Victoria Vikes on Saturday.

The Pronghorn Male Athlete of the Week is Tyler Feakes of the Pronghorns men's hockey team.

Feakes, a second-year forward from Spruce Grove, Alta., was one of the lone bright spots as the UBC Thunderbirds swept the Horns in Vancouver. In the club's 5-4 loss Friday night, Feakes scored two goals and recorded four shots on net, while finishing with a plus-one rating. He then was credited with five of the Horns' 37 shots on Saturday night, posting an even rating, as the U of L was beaten 4-1.
