Hockey player Josh Unice and basketball player Jenny Vaughan have been named the Western Mustangs Goodlife Fitness Athletes of the Week for Jan. 7-13.

Unice, a fourth-year King’s University College student, helped the Mustangs to two wins last week against the Brock Badgers and UOIT Ridgebacks to extend the team’s winning streak to 13 games. Unice was stellar in the Mustangs net, stopping 50 of 53 shots for a 1.50 goals against average and .943 save percentage. The two wins gives him 13 on the season, tying him for the most in the nation.

“Josh continues to provide strong, reliable goaltending for our team night in and night out. He gives the team confidence and the ability to win a game even when the team is not at its' best,” said Western interim head coach Patrick Powers.

Vaughan, a fourth-year Kinesiology student, helped the Mustangs defeat the Guelph Gryphons on the road Thursday night before returning to Alumni Hall and to face the Brock Badgers in a losing effort in Western’s annual Shoot for the Cure game. The game helps raise money and awareness for breast cancer research, and is part of a nationwide initiative that has raised $512,394.58 since its inception in 2007. Vaughan led the Mustangs in scoring for both contests, racking up 19 points in each game, while also adding four rebounds, five assists, and two steals.

“Jenny has played very well for us this year and has worked very hard preparing for this season. It's great to see her hard work being rewarded,” said Western head coach Brian Cheng.
