|Triumph was salvaged from bitter disappointment, as the Concordia Stingers women's team had to settle for a bronze in the third annual CIAU championships, held here February 24-27. In the photo at left, the players console each other after they lost the shoot-out that decided their game against the Alberta Pandas. The Stingers had to play without Corinne Swirsky, the CIAU's top scorer, who had to sit out a controversial one-game suspension. In the photo at right, the Stingers celebrate their 6-0 defeat of the University of Toronto Blues to take the bronze medal. The tournament, which had been won both previous years by the Stingers, was won by the Pandas, while the McGill Martlets took silver. Swirsky was named CIAU Player of the Year at the all-Canadian banquet held at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts on February 24, and Les Lawton was named Coach of the Year.|
