ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL. The women's volleyball team made like a brick wall on their way to capturing the bronze at this past weekend's Mustang Classic.

Women's Squash

The women's squash team travelled to Toronto this weekend to take part in the first tourney of the year. The women had a very successful trip taking 26 of the 30 matches to easily capture first place, over teams from McGill, Queen's, McMaster, the University of Toronto, Ryerson and York. The women's squash team will host a tournament of its own on Nov. 7 and 8.

Women's Field Hockey

Another team travelled to Toronto this weekend as the women's field hockey team laced them up against Carleton and McGill. Western continued to show its rock solid defence, not allowing a goal the entire weekend. The only problem was they couldn't score much themselves, as they came out with a 0-0 tie against Carleton and a 1-0 victory over McGill.

Men's Basketball

The exhibition basketball season got under way on the weekend and what a start it was. Western first travelled to Sarnia to take on Brock and easily disposed of them 90-59. The second game was against Toronto and again Western dominated, taking the game 79-60. Top scorers for the games were Nat Graham with 18 in the first game and Micah Bourdeau with 20 in the second.

Women's Basketball

The women cagers also got under way this weekend as they travelled to Toronto to take part in the Ryerson Classic. The women had a very successful weekend as they took the silver defeating York 73-55, then trouncing Guelph 63-43, before bowing in the final to McMaster 91-76.


This weekend both the men's and women's volleyball teams hosted the annual Mustang Classic. The women were able to fare alright as they grabbed the bronze medal. Finishing with the gold was University of British Columbia, while Laval got the silver.

In men's action, Western did not fare as well, finishing out of medal contention. Taking home the gold for the men was Sherbrooke University, with Laval getting another silver and Queen's winning the bronze.


The Mustangs took care of business on the weekend, defeating the University of Toronto 17-12 and York University 11-6.
