Legends of the fall

Caballero Jr.

Western Mustangs' men's soccer goaltender Roberto Caballero Jr. had an outstanding season this year, making shutouts at nearly every game a tradition. Caballero Jr. totalled five shut-outs during the regular season, playing strong throughout the year and staying focused in the clutch.

When it came down to crunch time in the Ontario University Athletics playoffs, he turned it up even more. He netted three shut-outs in the playoffs with wins in the quarter-final against Laurentian, the semi-final versus McMaster and a 3-0 victory in the final against Waterloo.

Caballero Jr. was awarded first team All-Canadian honours (his third time in a row) and consequently, is The Gazette's male athlete of the fall season.

Gerrie

Shannon Gerrie, runner and captain of the Western Mustangs' cross-country team, ran with all her might this season. Her numerous high place finishes helped the Mustangs earn their fifth ranked spot in Canadian Interuniversity Sport women's cross country.

She recorded numerous personal best times this season, such as her 13:58 clocking in the annual Purple and White Intersquad 4 km race, as well as her time of 14:01 at the McGill Open, which gave Gerrie a first place finish and Western's first ever gold medal at the meet.

She placed fifth at the CIS championships and was awarded first team All-Canadian status. As a result, Gerrie is The Gazette's female athlete of the fall.
