Women’s Hockey (CIS Ranking: No. 10) – The Cougars fell to 8-5-1 on the season after a regulation loss and an overtime loss to the University of Saskatchewan last weekend in Saskatoon. Though the Cougars are now in fifth place in Canada West, they’re just four points behind first-place UBC with Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba between them in the tightly packed standings. The U of R returns home this weekend for games on Friday night and Saturday night against Calgary.
Women’s Volleyball – The Cougars earned a weekend road split with No. 2-ranked Trinity Western, sweeping the Spartans in straight sets on Friday before losing in four on Saturday to push their Canada West record to 3-7. The U of R finishes out the first half of the conference schedule at home this weekend with matches against top-ranked UBC, which comes in with a 10-0 record on the season. First serve is scheduled for 6:00 on Friday night and 5:00 on Saturday night.
Men’s Volleyball – The Cougars were defeated twice on the road by Trinity Western last weekend, the No. 2-ranked team in the CIS. And the schedule gets no easier for the U of R this weekend, as the Cougars play their final matches before the December break at home against No. 3-ranked UBC (7-3) in what will be the third and fourth of 10 consecutive matches against teams currently ranked in the CIS Top Ten. Friday’s match has an 8:00 p.m. start time and Saturday’s first serve is set for 7:00 p.m.
Track & Field – It’s the first competition of the 2013-14 season for the men’s and women’s track teams on Saturday, as the Cougars will compete in an intrasquad meet. The first session will go from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the CKHS (60, 300, long jump, and triple jump) and the second session is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Regina Fieldhouse (high jump, shot put, weight throw).
Men’s Hockey – The Cougars scored a two-game sweep over Saskatchewan in a midweek home-and-home, winning 3-1 in Regina last Wednesday and following that up with a 4-3overtime win in Saskatoon the following night. Liam Brennan scored the game-winning goals in both games, while both Brody Luhning and Tyler Henry had three-point nights on Thursday for the third-place Cougars (8-6-0). The U of R travels to Calgary for two road games against the No. 2-ranked Dinos (13-0-1) on Friday and Saturday.
Women’s Basketball (CIS Ranking: No. 5) – The Cougars (6-2) moved up one spot in this week’s CIS Top Ten thanks to road wins over both Mount Royal and UNBC and Fraser Valley’s losses to Alberta and Saskatchewan. Tied for second place in the Prairie Division with Alberta and Calgary, the Cougars return to the court this weekend with road games on both Friday and Saturday against Lethbridge (3-5).
Men’s Basketball – It was a difficult travel weekend for the Cougars as they played games in Calgary and Prince George in the span of 24 hours, but the U of R came up with a weekend split after a tight loss to Mount Royal on Friday and a one-point win over UNBC on Saturday in which rookie Ryan Delwo hit a breakaway layup with six seconds left for the win. The Cougars (2-6) will battle the University of Lethbridge (5-3) this Friday and Saturday in Lethbridge.
Men’s Wrestling – Jacob Luczak led the Cougars with championship at 82 kg on Saturday at the Huskie Open in Saskatoon. Luczak defeated opponents from Alberta, Calgary, and Winnipeg on the way to the title, while Matt Fedler turned in a strong second-place performance at 72 kg for the Cougars. The U of R will travel to Weyburn on Wednesday to meet Dickinson State in a dual at Weyburn Comprehensive School (5:00 p.m.).
Women’s Wrestling – Kristine Longeau’s second-place showing at 72 kg was the top performance for the Cougars at the Huskie Open on Saturday in Saskatoon. Indhyra Linares added a fourth-place finish at 63 kg for the Cougars, who will return to the mats at the Golden Bear Open on Jan. 4 in Edmonton.
