Women’s Basketball star Kari Kubinec is the first Viking of the year to be named an ACAC Athlete of the Week. Kari had an outstanding performance this past weekend in a preseason exhibition tournament in Edmonton. Kari led the team in steals with a total of more than 13 on the weekend. Her defense was outstanding and she contributed with more than 25 rebounds and 35 points throughout the weekend. She helped lead the Viking to three big wins against NAIT (78-60), Olds (83-55) and Kings (74-44).
If Kari’s preseason performance is any indicator to the dominate nature of this year’s Vikings basketball team then the fans are in for a treat each and every night of Vikings basketball this season. See Kari and the whole team in action next at here at Augustana in their Home Opener against the SAIT Trojans November 2nd at 6pm.
Kari, thanks to the ACAC partners Marmot Basin and Hostelling International Jasper, will receive from Marmot Basin a Student Lift ticket for a day’s skiing plus a discount coupon for up to six accompanying friends/family members and from Hostelling International Jasper two dormitory bed nights. We are very pleased to welcome Marmot Basin and HI-Jasper to the ACAC family and are grateful to the contributions they are making to our student-athletes and to the development of sport in Alberta.
Congratulations Kari on being named Athlete of the Week!
