It was another weekend of road events for UBC’s varsity teams. While the road trips proved difficult for some, others — like track and field — flourished across the border.
Missed the Thunderbirds games this weekend? Don't worry, we've got you covered with some rapid-fire updates.
This weekend in regular season play, the baseball, softball and rugby teams competed for your prized attention.
In the first weekend of real spring weather here in Vancouver, our teams had more to cheer than the added sunshine.
It was a relatively quiet weekend in terms of quantity of varsity games — but it was exciting nonetheless.
Men’s soccer settled for a 1-1 tie against Fraser Valley and a 3-0 win against Trinity Western, while the women’s team claimed a 1-0 win against Victoria. Football downed Manitoba 30-20.
Epic wins, heartbreaking last-minute defeats and renowned rivalries were all on the books for the ’Birds.
UBC had a dominant week in sports, capped off by two golf tournament titles and two weekend sweeps by T-Birds soccer.
Overall, UBC recorded 18 wins across varsity teams in head-to-head match-ups this weekend — this doesn’t include some other awesome results for UBC’s rowing and cross country teams either.
With 23 games on the go this weekend, there are lots to talk about in terms of results.
Needless to say, it’s a busy time in sports with fall teams in playoffs and winter sports up and running.
Despite the buzz, intrigue and eventual heartbreak generated by the men’s soccer nationals hosted at Thunderbird Stadium this weekend, a swath of other UBC teams were in action, too.
Wins at War Memorial in Canada West? 4/4. Wins elsewhere? 2/6.
We're talking sweeps. We're talking national rankings and clinched playoff spots. We're talking personal milestones.
In the sports section, we hardly have any complaints about this past weekend. Lots of wins, lots of interesting highlights. Way to go, Thunderbirds.
In this weekend’s recap, we feature rugby 7s in their second tournament of the year, men's basketball's first losses in months, hat tricks in hockey and titles for track, among other things.
Sweeps for both volleyball programs. Sweeps for both hockey programs. Golden helmets for two of UBC women's hockey leaders. It was a wild weekend for the Thunderbirds.
Some teams flourished in playoffs. Some floundered. And other teams just kept on going with their regular season schedules.
While the rest of campus rested, it was down to business for several Thunderbirds teams in their playoffs and finals. Obvious highlight of the weekend: those swimming national banners, for the third-straight year.
More titles for men’s rugby. Rugby 7s take second place in home-hosted series. Basketball faces a Canada West giant in conference finals. It was another crazy couple of days in the varsity world.
