U SPORTS Championship:

Three Gee-Gees cross country athletes are attending the U SPORTS Cross Country Championships in Victoria, B.C. The women’s race gets underway at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday, with the men’s race starting at 5 ET. Participating Gee-Gees are Alex Berhe, Ziyad El Hankouri, and Kelli Shepherd. A more detailed preview will be published on the Gee-Gees website ahead of the weekend.

FEATURED GAME:

The Gee-Gees women’s hockey team (2-0-1) have a marquee home game against the U SPORTS eighth-ranked Montreal Carabins (2-0-2) on Sunday. The game is the featured matchup of the week, and an expanded preview will be on the Gee-Gees website in the coming days.

HOME GAMES:

The Gee-Gees men’s hockey team (4-3-1) is playing host to U SPORTS tenth-ranked Carleton Ravens on Friday. Ahead of the marquee Colonel By Classic, the teams get an early crack at each other on Gee-Gees’ home ice before next week’s game at TD Place Arena. The following night, uOttawa travels to Oshawa to take on UOIT (2-5-1) on Saturday. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. both nights and live streaming will be available on OUA.tv.

AWAY GAMES:

The U SPORTS seventh-ranked men’s basketball team (2-0) takes to the road for their first road trip of the regular season. The trip pits them against two top young coaches and their up-start teams, Justin Serresse’s Laurier Golden Hawks (1-2) and Justin Gunter’s Waterloo Warriors (0-3). Both games on Friday and Saturday night tipoff at 8 p.m. and are streaming live on OUA.tv.

The Gee-Gees women’s team (1-1) is also making the trip to Waterloo, as they look to get back on track against two solid opponents. Matchups with Laurier (2-1) and Waterloo (0-3) will be good tests for the team as they try to find their identity early in the season. Both games tipoff at 6 p.m. and are live on OUA.tv.

The Gee-Gees women’s volleyball team (2-4) is taking on the U SPORTS ninth-ranked McGill Martlets (3-1) in Montreal  on Friday night. In the team’s last matchup, the Gee-Gees home opener, it was a closer affair than the 3-1 final would indicate. A win could go a long way in building momentum into the last three matches of the semester. Action gets underway at 7 p.m. and will be streaming live by McGill at https://portal.stretchinternet.com/mcgill/.
