Mac teams finish fourth in squash


mcmasterThe McMaster men’s and women’s squash teams competed at the Ontario University Athletics Championships this past weekend and hosted by Brock University.

In the men’s competition, the Marauders finished in a third-place tie with Waterloo, each with records of 3-1-2. But using the tiebreaker of overall matches won, the Warriors were awarded the bronze medal. The Gold medal went to Western, which won its 33rd consecutive OUA title, while the Toronto Varsity Blues won the team silver.

McMaster’s Patrick Morkus was named an OUA All-Star for the second-straight season. The Marauders women’s team also had to settle for a fourth-place finish, as Queen’s, Toronto, and Western captured the top three positions.
