Stephen Evans, of the Gee-Gees track team, provided a great performance to finish off this athletics season for the Garnet and Grey, with a great come-from-behind run to finish just off the top of the podium.
Both competitions saw several medals awarded to the Gee-Gees, but no first-place finish for the team on the nation’s biggest stage.
The nationally seventh-ranked Gee-Gees Men’s Swimming team has been putting up strong performances all season, always staying in the U Sports top 10.
It was a slow start to the game, but a fiery third period would give the Garnet and Grey a 4-1 win on home ice.
Despite the loss, the team did get recognition for the players’ hard work. Seven Gee-Gees players were recognized by the OUA for their strong performances this year, both on and off the field.
Baines' great numbers and awards earned him some recognition professionally, since he was recently signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders and will attend training camp in May.
