garnet and grey

The teams’ long-awaited shared home opener was an overwhelming success, and left its audience ecstatic to see garnet and grey on the floor at Montpetit Hall once again.

The StFX rugby team has four national championships to their name, the most recent coming last year. The match was a timely test for the two national powerhouses during their weeklong break from regular season action.

The key this year for the Gee-Gees team is to improve their goal scoring as well as number of shots-per-game. Their schedule won’t get easier with regular matchups against the Martlets and Carabins, but that just means they need to prepare themselves as best as they can before the real action starts.

The Ontario University Athletics preseason rankings have put the Gee-Gees fourth in the conference behind Western, Guelph, and McMaster. There’s plenty of room for the Gees to succeed and make a deep run in the playoffs, and even take a crack at the national championship.
