Mustang Briefs

CROSS-COUNTRY

The women's cross-country squad captured the silver medal at the 26th annual Ontario University Athletics championships in Toronto with a team score of 67. Team captain Shannon Gerrie and rookie Jackie Bonisteel, both OUA All-Stars, finished with personal best times at second and ninth place respectively. The team will travel to Moncton, NB, in two weeks to compete for the national title. On the men's side, the Mustangs competed in the 89th annual men's championships, also in Toronto. The squad finished fifth overall after scoring 130 points in the 10 km race. Five of the seven team members ran personal bests, headed by Rob Berg's season-best time and 20th overall finish. The race marks the end of the season for the men's team. The Mustangs finished with an overall record of 82-35.

ROWING

Last weekend, the Mustangs rowing team competed in the OUA championships in Welland. The weekend was a successful one for Western with the women finishing second overall and the men's squad earning a bronze. The team will be travelling to British Columbia this coming weekend to compete for the Canadian University Rowing Championships at the University of Victoria.

FIELD HOCKEY

The Mustangs fell to the Waterloo Warriors 2-0 in a tight OUA championship game on Saturday. However, after defeating Queens 1-0 in the OUA semi-final match on Friday, the Mustangs earned an automatic berth in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships, which take place this weekend.
