Stingers finish fourth at CIS championships

After defeating the Laval Rouge et Or to become Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec champions, the Concordia Stingers travelled to Antigonish, Nova Scotia to participate in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championship. Along with the Stingers, the six team tournament included the hosts St. Francis Xavier X-Women, Alberta Pandas, Guelph Gryphons, Acadia Axewomen and Queen's Golden Gaels.

No. 6 Stingers shocked, then awe Redmen

Concordia's men's basketball team split their home and home series against the McGill Redmen. The Redmen pulled off a victory Friday, dealing the Stingers their first home loss of the season, but Concordia bounced back to take the second game. In Friday's match up, McGill's clutch shooting and solid defense led them to a hard fought 93 - 82 win, only their second of the season.

Quebec’s best team ready for next year

Forget about football. Forget about basketball. Heck, you can basically forget about any other varsity sport because without a doubt, women's hockey was the hottest sport at Concordia University in the 2001-2002 season. The only sports team to make it to the national championships, the Stingers had what can only be described as an outstanding season.
