Medoruma, Van Eeuwen earn awards

Matt Medoruma and Brandi Van Eeuwen have been named Subway Pronghorn Athletes of the Week following their efforts in Canada West play this past weekend.

Medoruma, a fifth-year midfielder playing the final home games of his Canada West career, led the Horns men's soccer team to a win and a tie against the University of Alberta, keeping the Horns playoff hopes alive.

Medoruma chipped in a valuable assist in the Horns' 2-0 victory over the Golden Bears on Saturday and was a force in the midfield Sunday as the U of L secured another point in its quest for a playoff spot.

The Horns head to face the University of Saskatchewan this weekend, needing at least a win and a tie to overtake the Huskies for the final playoff position.

On the women's side, fifth-year prop Van Eeuwen capped her Horns career with a four-try performance against the University of British Columbia in the Canada West women's rugby bronze medal game.

Van Eeuwen was also named a 2012-13 Canada West All-Star for the fifth consecutive season.
