It’s been a week of honours for Sea-hawks’ Kirby
Memorial University Seahawks striker Tyler Kirby has completed a trifecta this week, earning The Telegram sports department’s choice as athlete of the week. Kirby was earlier tabbed as Memorial’s athlete of the week and the Atlantic University Sport’s top athlete for the seven-day period.
Last weekend, in a pair of Sea-hawks wins over the Mount Allison Mounties at King George V Park, Kirby scored a pair of goals in each game as Memorial posted 4-1 and 8-0 wins.
In addition to Memorial, Kirby is a member of the provincial Challenge Cup champion Holy Cross Crusaders.
