Indoor season ends in defeat

While the average women's soccer fan at McGill might point to the team's impressive conference record and harvest of major year-end awards as signs of a successful 2009-10 campaign, the Martlet players and coaching staff aren't nearly satisfied with the season's results.

Seeing red: Hockey Redmen bounced from Nationals early

The CIS University Cup tournament is no place for the faint of heart. Two games can catapult a team to the doorstep of national glory, or just as easily dash their dreams of a historic season. The Redmen discovered this painful truth last week at Nationals, after losing 4-2 to the Atlantic University Sport Champion St.

FOOTBALL: Gaither maul Redmen

A year off may have cured many of the ills that plagued McGill's football program last season, but not quite all of them. Last year, the team's Achilles heel was an inability to stop the running game and, judging by their performance on Saturday against Bishop's, not much has changed.

THIRD MAN IN: Lovin’ the Cubs

In years past, Chicago has been called the most segregated city in America, in reference to the city's heavily black South Side and the mostly white neighbourhoods of the North Side. The city's most persistent divide, however, has little to do with race. To a much greater extent than either New York or Los Angeles, Chicago is a city divided by baseball.

McGill one win away from QSSF indoor soccer championship

For Head Coach Marc Mounicot and the McGill women's soccer team, there's nothing surprising about being in two provincial finals in the same academic year. In early November, the team's hopes of a berth at Nationals were shattered when the Martlets lost a 2-1 decision against the top-ranked Montreal Carabins in the conference championship game.
