The Waterloo Warriors dominated the OUA golf championships in Kingston this week. Their women’s team finished with a combined score of 486 strokes to win the gold medal while the men beat the second-place Gaels by six strokes, 594 to 600.

Matthew Holmberg won’t tell you who his favourite goalie is. “It’s difficult to talk about each one individually without talking about the overall role,” the women’s hockey head coach said. Goaltending depth has been a trademark of Holmberg’s three-year tenure as head coach. His goalies this season are third-year Mel Dodd-Moher, fourth-year Karissa Savage and third-year Engi Lim. He said he won’t name a full-time starter because they’re all good enough to play.
Cross country coach Steve Boyd thought the women’s season would be a rebuilding year. Then the Gaels posted a third-place finish at the Guelph Open last weekend. Boyd said he expects similar results from the women at the OUA championships on Oct. 29. “They have a better-than-outside shot of making the podium,” he said.
