Western Round-up

Men's Tennis
The men's tennis team failed to act as proper hosts on Saturday, knocking off both Brock 5-2 and McMaster 4-2 in the Western Open. Lacking a team victory until this weekend, the team now stands with a 2-4 record. Rookie Jamie Dunnett continued to impress both coaches and teammates winning both singles matches to raise his personal record to 4-2.

Women's Rugby
The women ruggers look like they are finally gelling as a team with their second win of the season, a 24-0 blow-out of the Queen's Golden Gaels on Saturday. Trys were scored by Meaghan Haney, Tamara Curtis, Kristen Clouthier and Vickey Peacem while Jodie Miller added two conversions for the win.

Field Hockey
The Mustangs continued their incredible season with three victories over the Homecoming weekend, raising their record to 9-1-2. In their first game, the women beat York 1-0 on a goal by Fiona Hawes. Hawes also potted the final goal in a 5-1 victory over Trent in which Jannisse Primeau scored a pair. The team finished off the successful weekend against Carelton winning 2-0, both goals coming from Jennifer Kicis.

On Saturday, the team went to the Head of the Trent Regatta in Peterborough where Western walked away with nine victories – six of them coming in the singles races.
On Sunday, Western hosted the Western Invites on Fanshawe Lake and matched their previous day's totals with another nine victories. Leigh Ann Niven and Erin Crawford were repeat singles winners from Saturday.

Women's Volleyball
In Winnipeg, the women's volleyball team won gold in their first tournment of the season. The Mustangs went undefeated winning all five of their games beating Guelph, Lakehead and Regina all by 3-0 scores –then winning the semi-finals against Winnipeg 3-1 and the final against Regina 3-1. Marnie Simpson was named the tournament MVP.

Water polo
The Mustang water polo team got blown out of the water on Saturday at the London aquatic centre losing both matches, first to Toronto 13-5 and then to York 18-8.

At the Chicago Lakefront Invitational, the Mustang cross-country team placed ninth in the women's division and 12th in the men's division.
