There are big changes coming to the U of O’s sports program. As early as next year there should be a crop of new Gee-Gees teams in U Sports competition that students can get excited about.
This was the second year in a row that the Gees have taken home the John Drake trophy, and the first year that they took home all three major varsity awards.
Coming into the game, the Gees had an astounding 8–0 record, scoring 373 points and only allowing 35 points against throughout the entire season.
The U of O team finished fifth in the province and qualified for the final tournament held just outside of Woodstock.
“Over the past years, we have been developing a racing team,” said club president and fourth-year political science student Jacob Thornhill. “[We] have proven to be competitive enough to place in many regattas. What we seek now is recognition as a competitive club from the University of Ottawa.”
