This summer I’m saying fuck it to slaving away and missing all the fun. If I want to take the full 12 days of Bluesfest off, I’m doin’ it.

To prepare for the game of their lifetime, TuneSquad leader Bugs Bunny—alongside basketball superstar Jordan—coached the team from pitiful to kind of acceptable.

With exams coming up, your mind’s fitness is probably taking priority over that of your body’s. Even though school is definitely important (don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to prepare for beach season after exams are over), you should still take a few minutes every day for a bit of physical exercise.

There’s more to lifeguarding than tans and Ray-Bans, so read on to learn what it takes to compete in this unique sport.

In their final run of the 2012–2013 season, the University of Ottawa women’s basketball team played in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Final 8 tournament in Regina, Sask. from March 15-17.

The team will travel to nationals with five all-star nods on top of Sparks’ coach-of-the-year honour. Gilbert and Kellie Ring were named to the OUA East first all-stars team, Stephen represents the Gees on the second team, and the duo of Traer and Julia Soriano were named to the all-rookie team.

In their third match of the season, the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East Division finals, the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees women’s basketball team fell 50-43 to the Carleton University Ravens.

Thomas White was the sports editor of the Fulcrum in 1955, and he wanted to share his story about the origins of a tradition that will surely make a comeback in the 2013 football season after the resurrection of Carleton University’s football program. A week after the phone call, I received a handwritten letter from Thomas in the mail (complete with an Anthony Calvillo postage stamp), sharing the following memory, written in the third person:

Three members of the men’s hockey team have been given the all-star nod, representing the University of Ottawa in all categories: the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East’s first, second, and rookie all-star teams.

There was a lot on the line for the University of Ottawa men’s basketball team at the Wilson Cup tournament—namely an Ontario University Athletics (OUA) gold medal and three spots at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Final 8 tournament.

Last year we did the NHL All-Star game and got to perform for the fans there. That was the coolest thing ever; I felt like I could do that for the rest of my life.

THE U OF O women’s hockey team has ended their season in the first round of playoffs, losing two consecutive games to the Université de Montréal Carabins in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) semi-finals.

It’s a great feeling to get this win for our program and for the guys who did so much for our program 20 years ago,” said Berhanemeskel after the game. “They did so much for this team’s culture and history.”

Emma Galbraith ecently broke a school record at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational meet in New York City, running 1000 metres in two minutes and 46.89 seconds—a time that also puts her on top of the Canadian Interuniversity Sports rankings for that race. Think you can beat her time? We dare you to try.

What better way to demonstrate your fandom than plastering it all over your beautiful face? Use face-paint sticks—conveniently available in our school colours at Dollarama—for best results.

Just like in other team sports, whether you play well or not, your teammates are there to pick up the slack if you had a bad round. We win together and lose together.

Global climate change is threatening this activity, and to play hockey or go for a skate on a frozen lake or pond may soon be a thing of the past.

Don’t be fooled by the fluffy name of the tournament, either—the She-Gees are a force to be reckoned with. Last year, they competed with 27 teams from across Ontario and won the annual Powderpuff tournament hosted by Wilfrid Laurier University.
