On Oct. 14 the Gee-Gees cross country team competed in the Capital XC Challenge here in Ottawa. The Gee-Gees competed on the Saturday afternoon in a race that featured a number of universities and the general public.
Last season represented a significant change in the Gee-Gees women’s volleyball program, as the team made the jump from the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) division to the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ).
Though the Gees lost in heartbreaking fashion, they can rest in the knowledge that they played hard in a gutsy game, and almost came out on top.
The University of Ottawa women’s soccer team is off to a roaring start this year, with 5–1–1 record lifting the Gees to second in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East standings.
An initiative like Team Up Speak Up is a great way for the U of O to help raise awareness of concussions. Concussions are a dangerous health risk to athletes, and it’s important that when an athlete suffers a concussion, they are able to get help right away.
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.
