The University of Ottawa Women’s Hockey team went into another year in the Réseau du Sport étudiant du Québec (RSÉQ) with stiff competition.
The Gees took another step in the right direction, and losing to a well-established McGill program is not something to be ashamed of.
A 77-69 defeat to the Ryerson Rams in the quarters on Feb. 24 put an end to the basketball season for the Gee-Gees, a team which at first glance looked promising.
The two series were best-of-three and were pushed to a limit of three games, with Ottawa ultimately falling in the decisive third game.
The Ottawa Gee-Gees and the Concordia Stingers Women’s Hockey teams squared off in the first game of their first round series on Feb. 21 at the Ed Meagher Arena in Montreal.
The Gee-Gees dominated in basically every facet of the game, from shooting percentage to rebounding where the Gees led 53-41 and scored 14 second chance points.
With the series tied up, the Gee-Gees will look to win the series in the final game on Feb. 25.
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.
The Gee-Gees women’s soccer team has advanced to the second round of the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) playoffs, after hanging on to a 1-0 lead against the University of Toronto in round one. For many, it was a flashback to last year’s first round, where the Gees also beat the U of T 1-0.
