“It’s an amazing workout, an extremely efficient form of self-defence, and if you want to compete, pretty much all the gyms offer that avenue. So I would just say show up, work hard, have fun, and bring a good attitude.” —Sacha Hijazi, owner/instructor of Muay Thai, Ottawa Fight and Fitness.

“We want to make sure that we can win that first game. In this type of playoff format, it’s not like a best of seven where you have a few games to come back.” —Mathieu Newcomb, Gee-Gees forward.

“Usually in the playoffs, what it comes down to is good teamwork, special teams, and goaltending. I know we have good teamwork and good goaltending, but special teams are something you’ve constantly got to work on.” —Patrick Grandmaitre, Gee-Gees head men’s hockey coach.

This year, U of O varsity teams have been giving back to the community in many different ways—some donating blood, others going to developing countries to teach their respective sports, while still others focused on more local causes.
