Abby Clarke, a 5th year goaltender from Springdale, NL, is November’s STU Tommies Coastal Graphics Athlete of the Month.
Clarke has sparkled for the Tommies between the pipes during their 10-game winning streak. Throughout that stretch she has gone 7-0-0 with a goals against average of 1.00 and a .960 save percentage.
She also leads the Atlantic University Sport in wins (11), goals against average (1.13) and save percentage (.955). All of those numbers are good enough for top five rankings in U Sport.
“Abby is having a tremendous season for us thus far,” said head coach Peter Murphy. “She is first in all goaltending categories for the conference and in the top five in all of USports. She gives us a chance to win every game and her teammates have great confidence when she is between the pipes.”
The Tommies head into the holiday break as the country’s #5 team, and ranked first in the AUS. They will be back in action on January 5th when they host the Saint Mary’s Huskies at the Grant-Harvey Centre.
