October 10, 2002 Stingers roundup




Lady Stingers upset
The Concordia Stingers women’s basketball team were upset 63-46 by the McGill Martlets last Saturday night. The win snapped an eight-game losing streak by McGill. Maria-Jose Raposa led Stinger scorers with 14 points.
The Concordia men fared better, beating McGill 84-74 and ending the Redmen’s playoff chances.

Hockey squad misses playoffs
The men`s hockey team dug themselves into an early-season hole and found the mountain too high to climb as they were eliminated from the playoffs, losing a home game to the Ottawa Gee-Gees two weeks ago.

The Stingers failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season.

“Our division is the toughest in Canadian university hockey,” head coach Kevin Figsby said recently. “We have a young team, but we have been very competitive.”

Concordia releases football dates
Are you ready for some football? It may be only February, but that hasn’t stopped the schedule-makers, who have just released the dates when Concordia will battle their foes on the gridiron.

The eight-week schedule features seven games versus Quebec conference opponents and a trip to Sackville, N.B., where the Stingers will face the Mount Allison Mounties as part of the cross-over with Atlantic University Sport.

The season opens with Concordia hosting the Bishop’s Gaiters on Saturday, Sept. 6. The Stingers will play home-and-away series with two of their arch-rivals, the McGill Redmen and the Laval Rouge et Or.

The latter will be the opponents at Concordia’s annual Homecoming game. The 2003 regular season campaign wraps up with the fledgling Sherbrooke Vert et Or visiting Concordia Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 25. It will be the first season for the Sherbrooke entry.
Negotiations are under way with RDS for a television package featuring all the QIFC teams.

Also, the dates of the Shrine Bowl and Shaughnessy Cup will be finalized shortly.

Philippe Langlois of the men’s basketball team and M.J. Raposo of the women’s basketball team were recently named Concordia Stinger athletes of the week.

Langlois, a native of Varennes, was a force at both ends of the court on the weekend. He had 17 points, 10 assists and five steals in an 88-84 victory versus McGill.
