Purple Pipe: Terri
A LEAN, MEAN, FIGHTING MACHINE. Western wrestler Terri McNutt won
the Purple Pipe for kicking some ass on the wrestling mat.
The Purple Pipe is
especially frightened this week, in lieu of its current holder. Female
wrestler Terri McNutt destroyed Queen's University wrestler Alisa Overend
in the final of the Ontario University Athletics Championships 53 kg weight
class at McMaster University this past weekend.
But even with the trepidation, the Pipe could not overlook McNutt's excellence
at the championships. McNutt "overend"ed Alisa with a double-leg
lift throw and eventually came away with a victorious margin of 12-0.
In the preliminary rounds, McNutt defeated Courtney Lafond from Brock
University and Lisa Fisher from the University of Guelph by technical
superiority (10 point difference).
The results were instrumental in leading the Mustangs to a third place
team finish, and vaulted McNutt to the Canadian Interuniversity Championships
at Brock in St. Catharines held Feb. 28 and Mar. 1. Joining her will be
teammate Tena Dardic, who finished third.
Medals are nothing new to McNutt. The second-year nursing student also
grabbed gold at the Toronto Open in the 51 kg weight class and settled
for silver in the 53 kg weight class at the Queen's Open.
Honourable mention must go out to the women's curling team who brought
the OUA gold medal home to London.
