Ben Ouimet, of the Stingers football team, and Marie-Claude Allard, of the women's soccer squad, have been named Concordia Stinger athletes of the week.

Ouimet, a fifth-year runningback, collected 99 yards on three receptions and scored a touchdown in his team's 37-19 loss to the Acadia Axemen. A native of Joliette, he is an Arts student at Concordia.

Allard, a fifth-year forward, scored all three goals in her team's 3-3 tie with the Bishop Gaiters. Allard, 23, might be the first Stinger female athlete to have recorded a hat trick in two sports. Last year, she was named to the first team All-Canadian list in women's hockey. The Quebec City native is majoring in psychology.

Hall of Fame

It's still not too late to get your choices in for the Concordia Sports Hall of Fame. Nominations will be accepted until Oct. 12 in the following categories: athlete, builder and team.

The awards represent individuals and teams for outstanding achievement while at Concordia, Sir George Williams University or Loyola College.

Alumni jocks organize

Attention former Concordia varsity athletes! The Alumni Association has just formed the Varsity Athlete Chapter, a group designed to meet the needs of former athletes.

The chapter, run jointly by the department of recreation and athletics and the Alumni Relations office, will endeavour to preserve and celebrate the history of the Sir George Williams Georgians, the Loyola Warriors and Concordia Stingers.

The chapter's first official event will be a welcome reception Oct. 4 at Loyola High School on Sherbrooke St. W. A wine and cheese social will welcome back all former varsity athletes. For information, call Paul Chesser at 848-4856.

Healy takes Calgary job

Julie Healy has left the recreation and athletics department to take a job in Calgary with the Canadian Hockey Association, as Director of Female Programs.

The graduate of bio-physical education leaves after 16 years of service in which she held various positions, including assistant women's hockey coach, facilities co-ordinator and, more recently, intercollegiate co-ordinator and budget and administration manager.

Healy's new job will see her overseeing the country's high performance and developmental women's team programs.

Time to “kill” McGill?

The 16th annual Shrine Bowl and Homecoming football game will take place Oct. 5 at Concordia Stadium when the McGill Redmen visit the Stingers at 1 p.m. The game will also serve as the Shaughnessy Cup contest.

The Stingers sit in third place with two wins and two losses going into this weekend's game at Bishop's. McGill and Laval are tied for top spot with identical 3-1 records.

The Varsity Athletic Chapter will host a barbecue before the McGill/Concordia matchup in the Homecoming tent next to the stadium. Sixteen teams celebrating special anniversaries of league championships will be honoured.

Soccer teams split

The Stingers women's soccer team fell just short, losing 2-1 to Laval last Sunday. The men got a little revenge, however, when they dumped Laval 1-0 in the second game.

Both Concordia teams travel to McGill on Friday with the women kicking off at 6:30 p.m., followed by the men at 8:30 p.m. On Sunday, UQAM comes to Concordia. The women's game is at 1 p.m., with the men taking the field at 3 p.m.
