Dinos prepare for Lumberjacks

The UC Dinos, who for several years have ridden the broad shoulders of Robbie Sihota and Ross and Henry Bekkering started training camp this week with a corral of newcomers vying for spots on the playing roster.

With 10 players out of 17, who are added from last season, Coach Dan Vanhooren will have his hands full as he pares down the squad in preparation for Friday and Saturday games against the University of Northern Arizona. “ We are certainly a young group, relative to recent seasons, but we’re happy with our recruits, and pleased with how they are competing in camp”, said Vanhooren.

More stuff on last night's Lethbridge/NAU game... the Horns were without at least five players who figure to be starters and/or regulars in their rotation including 6'1" Julian Spear Chief-Morris who has an injury that hasn't been fully diagnosed - some are speculating it has the symptoms of a sports hernia. 6'5" Brandon Thomas-James has not yet arrived in Lethbridge and remains home in the GTA. Also both 6'7" sophomore Wes Chapman and 6'1" junior Quinn Van Gaalen were unavailable last night but both are expected to play Sunday. Both recruits from Casper College, 6'10" Abner Kamps and 6'11" Nicola Kovac will not be available for Sunday's game.


New Mexico State Aggies have decided to cancel their Saturday morning tilt against a group of Ottawa Guardsmen Alumni scheduled for 10 AM at the Raven's Nest in Ottawa. Thus the final game of their tour of Canada will be this coming Friday night against the Carleton Ravens at the Raven's Nest beginning at 7 PM.
