Western hitting hard

Medals show soccer mettle

Medals show soccer mettle

Things are slowly beginning to look up for the Western Mustangs women's soccer team

It was just a week and a half ago, when the Mustangs were shut out 1-0 in the Ontario University Athletics semifinal by the Queen's Golden Gaels. The Mustangs were forced to settle for the bronze and miss out on the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships.

But now the news has changed from bad to good.

In only his second year at the helm, head coach Mark Eys was named CIS Coach of the Year. Eys led the Mustangs to a 15-1-1 record – the best in the CIS.

The good news didn't end there – Cristina Bonasia was named the CIS rookie of the year. Bonasia, a graduate of London's St. Thomas Aquinas Secondary School, led the team with 12 goals, was named OUA Rookie of the Year, a first team OUA all-star and a first team CIS All-Canadian Midfielder.
