Doyle reflects on head coaching experience with hockey Martlets

An 86-game winning streak, three players on all-Canadian teams, and a silver-medal finish at Nationals. Not a bad result for a first -year hockey coach. Then again, experience with the team is one thing Martlets interim Head Coach Amey Doyle had in spades when she took over Canada's most successful women's hockey program from Peter Smith at the beginning of the year.

WOMEN’S SOCCER: Second half surge sinks Sherbrooke

The third ranked Martlets got off to a slow start in Friday night's season opener at Molson Stadium. But a much stronger second half allowed them to escape with a 2-0 victory over the visiting Sherbrooke Vert et Or. Neither side had been able to find any rhythm or assert itself during the first frame.

THIRD MAN IN: Sportsophobia

Sports are boring. Let's talk about baseball - I don't care if it is "America's pastime," but when a game only becomes exciting after two and a half hours and consists of waiting to find out whether a player will hit the ball - or if it's really heated, whether a player will catch it - then I believe it's time to find a better way to spend the afternoon.

PROFILE-MEN’S ROWING: From flyers to a flying finish

While very few university students can say that they are on their country's national rowing team, even fewer can say that they have won a medal at the World Rowing Championships. However, Derek O'Farrell can lay claim to both. Over the summer, the U4 physiology student finished third in the Men's Coxed Pair at the under-23 World Rowing Championship in Eton, UK, becoming the first McGill rower to ever reach the podium at a World Championship.

Atlantic

Boston Celtics: The reigning champs lost a lot of their toughness when they let go of SF James Posey, but the Celtics are still the favourites to win the East. Their rookies, C Semih Erden and guards Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens, have seen little action this preseason and figure to play minor roles, if any, this year.

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.

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.
