Baseball season comes to an end
The Concordia Stingers baseball team completed their regular season this week, and went 4-1 over their five games to close the season.
They opened the week with a 9-5 win over the McGill Redbirds. The Stingers then swept a doubleheader against the Carleton Ravens on Saturday, leading in the second with a complete game and a two-hit shutout by pitcher Emmanuel Hamel-Carey.
Finally, on Sunday, the Stingers split a doubleheader against the Ottawa Gee-Gees; winning 7-0 backed by a four-hit shutout by Matthew Jacobson, but dropped the second game.
The Stingers’ record stands at 9-7 and they are fourth in the Northern Conference.
Stingers on ice
Both Stingers men’s and women’s hockey teams participated in exhibition tournaments this weekend.
The men, who were playing their first games of the season, won 5-4 in a shootout against Western, with forward Mike Baslyk scoring the winning goal. The Stingers also had to work overtime falling to the host Brock 3-2.
On the women’s side, the Stingers won two of their three games at the University of Toronto. One week after playing her first CIS game, Stephanie Peck recorded her first shutout in a 1-0 win over Markham-Stoufville. The following night, Audrey Doyon-Lessard shut out the Toronto Varsity Blues in a 2-0 win. The Stingers lost 3-0 on Sunday against Durham.
Revenge for women’s rugby
One week after a “disappointing” win against Sherbrooke according to head coach Graeme McGravie, the Concordia women’s rugby team beat the Ottawa Gee-Gees 42-3. Rookie centre Jackie Tittley had two trys and six converts to lead the way for the Stingers.
