OTTAWA -- Magali Harvey, a rugby player from St. Francis Xavier University, has earned the Canadian Interuniversity Sport female athlete of the week honours.

Sami Obaid, a soccer player from the University of Montreal, won the male award.

Harvey, a third-year arts student from Quebec City, set a pair of single-game conference records Sunday as the top-ranked X-Women kicked off the regular season with a 101-0 rout of Saint Mary's.

The five-foot-five fullback scored 39 points to eclipse the previous AUS mark of 35 set in 2008 by former StFX player Ghislaine Landry. She kicked 12 converts to break her own record of 10.

McGill rugby player Brianna Miller, Ottawa soccer player Julia Francki and Trinity Western soccer player Krista Gommeringer were also nominated for the women's award.

Obaid, a medical student from Ottawa, scored two goals and added two assists in his Carabins debut as Montreal opened league play with a 5-0 shutout of Concordia. The 25-year-old midfielder is in his first season with the Carabins after starting his university career at McGill.

Soccer players Aaron McMurray of UNB and Marcus Johnstone of Alberta were the other male nominees.
