With visions of gold medals dancing in their heads, the Concordia women’s hockey team is set to begin play at the National University Championships in Regina. Their first game is Feb. 28 against the University of Alberta.

The Stingers huddled around a TV set to watch the Canadian women’s team win gold at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City last week.

Four ex-Stingers played in the game: Thérèse Brisson and Caroline Ouellette for Canada, Cammi Granato and Karyn Bye for the United States.

The psyched-up 2001-2002 version of the Stingers made the Nationals by disposing of the plucky McGill Martlets in two straight games last week. Lisa-Marie Breton-Lebreux scored just 34 seconds into overtime of game two to give Concordia a 3-2 and a sweep of the series. The Stingers are ranked third in Canada, while McGill was ranked sixth.

Stingers, Martlets hoop it up

The Concordia Stingers and McGill Martlets played a conference sudden-death semifinal basketball game last night, Feb. 27, to decide who will play Laval in the provincial final. The Stingers ended the season with a 69-65 loss to Laval in Ste. Foy last Sunday. Kristina Steinfort scored 13 points for Concordia. The previous day, the Stingers used Steinfort’s 17 points to beat Bishop’s 62-49.

The Stingers finished the regular season in second place with a 9-6 record.

Meanwhile, the men’s basketball squad ended its worst season ever by losing 79-70 to Laval last weekend. Concordia finished in last place out of the playoffs and won only two of 15 regular season games.
