The Gees took the first step towards a national title on Saturday, Feb. 25 when they faced off against the Laurentian Voyageurs in the OUA quarterfinal.
Even though the Gees ultimately lost to the Université de Montréal Carabins by a final score of 2–1, they didn’t go down without putting up a fight.
The University of Ottawa women’s basketball team split a two-game series against two Ontario University Athletics rivals, the York University Lions and the Queen’s University Golden Gaels on Feb. 10 and 11, respectively.
As a result of this loss, the Gees’ record is now 14–8–4 and they sit in sixth place in the Ontario University Athletics East Division.
While it’s still a tight race, the team has some ground to make up in their remaining four games before playoffs start.
Both the men’s and women’s teams were looking to avenge losses to Carleton earlier this season, but unfortunately retribution would have to wait.
