Track and field picks up 10 medals

The track and field team came away with 10 medals—five gold, two silver and three bronze—from last weekend’s Last Chance Challenge in Montreal. Michael Nishiyama led the way for Queen’s with a gold in the men’s 600-metre and recorded a personal-best time of 1:22.85 seconds in the process. He was also part of the gold-medal men’s 4X800-metre relay team with Mike Arnold, Scott Knieriem and Clay Patterson. Arnold earned another gold in the men’s 4×200-metre relay with teammates Adrian Heller, Gord Frenke and Tyler Nightingale. On the field side, Matt Pierce picked up a silver in the men’s triple jump and Taya McGillivary earned silver in the women’s shot put.

Moore named to OUA all-star team

Despite the women’s basketball team’s Feb. 19 loss in the OUA quarterfinals for the second year in a row, Brittany Moore again achieved individual accolades. Moore, last year’s OUA rookie of the year, was named to the OUA first all star team Tuesday. For three pointers, she finished second in Canada with 61 and second in the OUA for total points with 392. Her top performance came Jan. 7, when she set a Queen’s single-game record with 40 points against the Royal Military College Paladins.
