Letal, Stemler earn Subway honours

The University of Lethbrdige announced its Pronghorn Athletes of the Week on Wednesday and it was hardly surprising a member of the three-time national championship women's rugby team was among the honorees.

Andrea Letal was named Subway Pronghorn Female Athlete of the Week after she played a major role in the Horns capturing their third consecutive Monilex trophy over the weekend.

Letal, a third-year wing, was named CIS championship match MVP after scoring two tries in the Horns' 20-3 victory over St. Francis Xavier. She also scored a try in the Horns' semifinal win over Guelph while her tough defence and kicking ability were key reasons for the Horns not surrendering a try throughout the entire tournament.

On the men's side, men's basketball post Remington Stemler had his best weekend in a Pronghorn jersey, helping the Horns to a weekend split with the Regina Cougars.

On Friday night, with the Horns down 15 points late in the fourth quarter, Stemler kick-started a Horns' run that cut the deficit to a single point. Stemler recorded two big blocks and a huge dunk, and despite the comeback falling short, the fifth-year post had a productive night with seven rebounds, three points and four blocks in 13 minutes.

The next night, during the Horns' first conference win of the season, the Calgary native collected 10 points, nine rebounds and another block in 19 minutes of action in a 70-54 win.
