Riding high off their win of the Ontario Colleges’ Athletic Association (OCAA) gold medal (March 3), the Mountaineers descended into Halifax en route to the host school, Nova Scotia Agricultural College in Truro, Nova Scotia.

The men’s team fared well finishing the eight-kilometre event in fourth place led by tenth place finisher Jon Redfearn (27:32.9). The team from Fanshawe took home the title of champions. George Brown’s Sean Sweeney recorded the overall best time (25:34.6).

Starting pitcher Jessica Denstedt knew she was getting the nod for game one and said she was “pretty relaxed” about the game before boarding the bus.
Taking a game from undefeated Durham, in what would be a late home opener for the Lords, was going to be a challenging feat. Denstedt knew she would need support from…
A big part of competing in the Ontario Colleges’ Athletic Association is dealing with the loss of players in key roles and developing new players to fill them. That is the situation head coach Alex Paris is in with the men’s rugby team.
“We have a lot of rugby to learn to play over the next couple of weeks and for us to be able to be consistent we just got to make sure that we have our new guys understanding what we’re doing,” said Paris.
