Wednesday Morning Notes

The Queen's Golden Gaels completed their four-game swing through western Canada with a victory over the UCFV Cascades on Tuesday night. All 14 Gaels who dressed played in the game as Queen's evened its record at 2-2 for the trip. Queen's has a quick turnaround, restarting their OUA East regular season on Friday and Saturday with a pair of games against York and Laurentian.

A less-than-positive article on the popularity (or lack thereof) of Canadian university athletics appears in this morning's National Post with quotes from York's Bob Bain and Alberta's Don Horwood. More detailed comments and opinions are reserved for another time but suffice to say, my opinion is that if we want our sport to be more popular and covered more by the main stream media, it is up to us to take action until it happens Mark Spector article from National Post
