UBC Thunderbirds field hockey player Robyn Pendleton

Current national field-hockey player and former Vic High student Robyn Pendleton is the female athlete of the week for the Canada West conference of the CIS.

Pendleton scored three goals in two games to help the UBC Thunderbirds sweep the Calgary Dinos. The fourth-year forward scored twice on Sept. 24 as the Thunderbirds won 3-0, and once in a 3-1 win on Sept. 25.

The last-place UVic Vikes (1-3) visit the Thunderbirds (3-1) for games on Saturday and Sunday.

Pendleton returned to the Thunderbirds after a year with the national team, including a trip to the Commonwealth Games.

Pendleton was the MVP when UBC won the 2009 CIS championship.
