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.
The University of Ottawa track and field team participated in the U Sports National Championship from March 8-10, with 12 competing athletes.
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 team was able to collect a total of 124 points in the women’s event, for the 13th place amongst other universities, while the men, who finished 11th, were able to collect 186 points.
The Gee-Gees women’s rugby team have won the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) championship for the fourth year in a row, defeating the University of Laval in a hardfought game.
The Gees looked out of sorts all game, and a major blowout was the end result. When the last buzzer mercifully sounded the final score read an embarrassing 80–41.
It was a hard-fought battle, but the Gee-Gees prevailed, proving why they’re the best team in their conference and perhaps the nation.
