Guelph provides another test for Gaels

Despite the outright 40-7 shellacking of the Windsor Lancers last weekend, the Gaels football team of 2010 has much to accomplish.

More than just a hobby

With the school year long gone and the lazy days of summer settling in, many people can take pleasure in being unproductive. The crunch of the semester forces a subconscious nagging about assignments upon even the least diligent students. Even with a summer job, there is usually no need to think about it after punching the clock. In the summer, training replaces school for a varsity athlete.

Both are title-holders, but in September they start again from square one. The men’s soccer team is looking to avenge their disappointing early round exit from the playoffs, while the women’s team seeks to continue their dominance from last season. With latent applause from last season, the Gaels are looking to get back on the field, the pitch and the ice to prove that last season was no fluke.Continue...
