Heninger, Matte named athletes of the week

Becky Heninger tormented her former team and Brian Matte made an impressive debut for his new team as each player earned Subway Pronghorn Athlete of the Week honours.

Heninger, a fourth-year guard and former University of Calgary Dino, kicked off the second semester of Canada West women's basketball conference action with her best offensive output of the season.

Playing against her former team, the Medicine Hat native scored a team-high 21 points in only 29 minutes of action. She went 7-of-12 from the field and 7-for-8 from the free throw line as the Horns beat the Dinos 90-83 on Saturday night.

The win was the sixth in seven games for the Horns and improved their record to 6-5 on the season, tying the Dinos and University of Winnipeg for the fourth and final conference playoff position.

On the men's side, first-year forward Brian Matte made an impressive debut for the Pronghorns men's hockey team.

After joining the team following the semester break, Matte registered a team-leading eight shots on goal in his Canada West debut Friday night, a 1-0 loss to University of Manitoba Bisons.

Saturday night, the former Prince George Cougar then opened the scoring with his first CIS goal and later assisted on the game-winning goal in a 6-4 Horns win over the Bisons. He also recorded another six shots on net.
