Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for October 3 - 9, 2016
Sandy Heim, the potential future starting goaltender of Switzerland’s Olympic team kicked off her second year with the MacEwan University Griffins with a bang, stopping 45 of 47 shots in a pair of weekend wins over the SAIT Trojans. Heim made 30 saves in Friday’s 2-1 win in Calgary and was named player of the game. Then she kicked out 13 of 14, many of the game-saving variety, in a 2-1 win over SAIT in the Griffins’ home opener in the new Downtown Community Arena. Heim is on the radar for the Swiss national team program and will continue to turns heads with performances like this.
Heim is a second year Accounting and Strategic Measurement student from Wilderswill, Switzerland
