Women topple Warriors

The women’s basketball team traveled to Waterloo last weekend hoping to build on a two-game winning streak.

Volleyball notches key wins

Five must be a lucky number for the men’s volleyball team. Proving that they can go the distance, the team chalked up its third and fourth five-set wins of the season this week. Remaining undefeated in five-setters this season, the Gaels took on the McMaster Marauders and Guelph Gryphons and emerged victorious in both contests.Continue...

The impressive results and high calibre of our teams made the grading process difficult. With a few more playoff wins, what follows might well have looked a lot like a Queen’s student’s high school report card. Congratulations to all the Queen’s athletes, coaches and administrators who worked so hard to bring our school results to be proud of.Continue...

Reggie Bush: NFL draft gem?

Ravens falter

A good winning streak is one of those things that is never really appreciated until it’s over. For a while, it’s the only thing anyone can talk about.

Before long, the initial buzz has worn off. Victories continue to pile up, championships are won, and fans become wary of discussing the streak too openly—like not talking to a pitcher in the middle of a no-hitter for fear of jinxing him.Continue...
