Western Mustang briefs

The men’s and women’s wrestling teams were both in action this weekend at the Brock Invitational Dual Tournament.

The Mustang women came home with a bronze medal after defeating McMaster 25-10. Cumberland College of Kentucky won the tournament after defeating Brock, last year’s national champion.

Western lost to Cumberland in the opening round before defeating Lakehead, Guelph and McMaster. The women were led by captain Terri McNutt, who breezed through three straight matches. She recorded wins by pin and one by technical superiority, along with one win by default.

Other winners for the Mustang women included Katie Wilson, Shannon Smart, Jen Kryszak and Jill McCallum. McNutt, who is ranked third in Canadian Interuniversity Sport, will be competing at the Canadian Olympic trials later in December.

The men’s team placed fifth at the tournament. They upset the fifth ranked Lakehead Thunderwolves 24-13, their first win over Lakehead in four years.

The men got wins from rookie Adam Shields, Seth Ross, Tosh Jeffrey, Jamie Gillman, Scott Swarbreck and Alan Bermingham. The Mustangs are tied for 10th place in Canada. In other action this weekend, the men defeated Queen’s 36-6 before losing to Niagara College 23-20 and Guelph 25-19.

Both teams are off until the new year, yet will continue to work on their conditioning.

The Western Mustangs’ men’s hockey team played a pair of games in Kingston this weekend against Queen’s University and Royal Military College. They returned with two impressive wins and sole possession of first place in the OUA West division.

On Saturday, they defeated Queen’s 8-4. Justin Davis and Jeff Martin each had three goals for the Mustangs while Mike Rice and Tom Brown each added one apiece. Mike Stathopoulos chipped in with three assists.

The team managed to improve on Saturday’s performance with a 10-0 win over RMC on Sunday. The Mustangs got two goal performances from Jamie Chamberlain, Jason Davies and Chris Rowan. Jamie Sokolsky, Jeff Martin, Ryan Held and Steve Benedetti all added singles in the victory.

Rowan and Davies each had three assists to go along with their goals.

The victories, combined with Lakehead’s tie against Toronto and loss to Windsor earlier in the week, give Western sole possession of first place in the OUA West heading into the Christmas break.
