Western Round-up

Tennis
Three members of Western's tennis team spent this weekend competing at the Cedar Springs Racquet Club in Burlington for the OUA individual finals. Super Frosh Jamie Dunnett brought home the bronze medal by winning the consolation game by default after York's Flavio Vanacore pulled a stomach muscle in his first round game and was unable to compete. Dunnett lost his first game 6-3, 6-4 to Tony Roth of Queen's. Dunnett and Peter Walker failed to move in doubles after a first-round loss to York. Kelly Kives placed fourth overall after losing to Toronto in three matches.

Swimming
On Saturday, the Mustang swim team put together a strong showing but failed to upset highly-ranked McMaster in their home pool in Hamilton. On the men's side, McMaster won 135-81 in total points, with Mustang Andrew Munro grabbing two first place finishes in the 100-metre fly and 100-metre freestyle and second place honours in the 800-metre freestyle. On the women's side, the team lost 147-68, with one of only a few Western highlights coming from Keely Haggins, Nicole Nakatsu and Amy Bartoch who placed one-two-three in the 50-metre freestyle race.

Women's Squash
The team traveled to Ryerson over the weekend and placed a close second to McGill with only a one point difference. The team won four of its five matches, losing only to the Martletts on total number of game wins after the teams tied 3-3. Tiffany Foster, Emma Wardle, Yaseena Kajia and Wendy Oliver all went undefeated.

Water Polo
The men's team went undefeated with three strong performances over the weekend at the Toronto Crossover tournament. Western tied Carleton 7-7 and beat Queen's 10-4 and Ottawa 25-7. The victories will now qualify the team for the OUA finals in Ottawa two weeks from now.
