The CIS Men's Hockey Championship was a resounding success, thanks to the many volunteers who helped stage the five-day event last March. "Our volunteers were the backbone of the effort and I can't thank them enough," says Lakehead Athletics Director Tom Warden.
The University of New Brunswick's Varsity Reds emerged victorious after an exciting weekend competition involving six University teams: UNB Varsity Reds, St. Mary's Huskies, Western Ontario Mustangs, Lakehead Thunderwolves, McGill Redmen, and Alberta Golden Bears.
The Lakehead Thunderwolves, as host team, did not get the results they wanted (losing 2-1 to the Golden Bears and 3-1 to the Varsity Reds), but they did play well against two of the top teams in the country. And they are looking forward to competing next year when, once again, Lakehead University will host the Cavendish University Cup.
