Western Round-up

It was a clean sweep at the McMaster West Sectional this weekend with all 12 Western fencers qualifying for the next level of competition. Each now advance to the next weekend's meet which is to be held at Western.

With Olympic-calibre wrestlers competing, the Guelph Open provided too much strong competition for the Western athletes this weekend, leaving the team limping back to London. First-year Scarborough native Belinda Chou was the only Mustang to crack the top six with a fifth-place finish in the women's 62 kg category. For the men, team captain Scott Proctor was pulled from competition early with a injured forearm, while Frosh Mitch Dodd could only put together a 2-2 record.

Women's Squash
In the team's final tournament of the season, at London's Town and Country Squash Club this weekend, the women placed first with 29 of a possible 30 points. Queen's followed in second.

This now places them in first place heading into the team finals on Feb. 7 in Burlington.
