Legends of the fall
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.
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
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.
