“I think we’ve got to have a bit of a refresher every few months to say: ‘Hey, if anybody’s taking any medications, you better let us know.’ So we’re going to have to have a system to check in.” —Sue Hylland, U of O director of Sports Services.
“Ottawa’s a great place to ski, so we just have to convince them to go here and not go to Carleton.” —Sheila Kealey, head coach, U of O Nordiq ski team.
Whether it’s running, biking, weightlifting, swimming, or whatever. You want to get some stretches in to make sure you’re nice and loose, and ready for some exertion.
Adding to the list of accolades for the Gee-Gees women’s soccer team, the Ottawa Sports Awards committee has selected head coach Steve Johnson for male coach of the year.

The victory puts the golden cherry on top of what was a near-flawless season.
