Looking good but not quite good enough! CW Men & Women sported new warm up jackets on Saturday at UBC, discarding the old versions after eight years of well-worn service! This is representative of just a small portion of operating costs, also to add, transporting four senior teams to Point Grey! Unfortunately, the Tricolours bowed out in three of the four games to the loaded student program. The Birds look to be the club to beat once again. (p.s. Unis, compliments of fundraising efforts.)
