Mustang briefs

The Ontario University Athletics announced Western will host the 2004 Queen's Cup on Mar. 13 and 14, 2004. It will be the third straight year the men's hockey championship is held here at Thompson Athletic Complex.

The OUA also announced a new format for the tournament. The host school will receive an automatic bid, raising the number of teams to five. However, if the host team also wins their respective division, it will go on with just the four teams.

Mustangs' men's squash coach Jack Fairs is one of three former Mustangs to be inducted into the Chatham Sports Hall of Fame.

Fairs, along with hockey stars Larry Babcock and Al Hinnegan, were inducted at a dinner on Thursday.

Fairs has been an athlete and coach at Western since 1942. He has coached football, basketball and now squash. The squash team has won 20 straight OUA titles.

The Mustangs baseball team opened the regular season with a 12-10 victory over Guelph.

The team's next home game will be Sunday against defending OUA champions Brock.

The women's soccer team was scheduled to play an exhibition game against Fanshawe College on Wednesday night.

However, the game was cancelled due to a gas leak at Fanshawe. The leak was detected at 3:30 p.m. and the entire College was then evacuated. The team opens their regular season with a game against Laurier on Saturday.
