Congratulations Windsor Lancers 
(en francais)

Lost in all the noise of the Winter Olympics, the University of Windsor had a stellar weekend in OUA sports. The Women's Volleyball team achieved a first in sweeping the championship series over 9th ranked Toronto. In the last 34 years only Toronto, York, Ottawa and Western have won a volleyball title. Windsor beat all the odds and three of those four teams on their way to victory. A fantastic achievement for the team.

The Women's and Men's team continued their dominance on the track, retaining both titles. Lancers head coach Dennis Fairall has built a world class program at the University that continues to excel. Eschewing the traditional track focus on individual performance, Fairall has fostered a team concept that everyone feeds off of. The results speak for themselves.

Rounding out the action, the Men's Basketball team ended an 18 year drought in playoff action winning an OUA quarter final match against the Waterloo Warriors with a buzzer beating 3 point shot. With 7 wins in their last eight games, the men now face top seed McMaster in the semi-finals. Best of luck to the team.

Congratulations to all the Lancer athletes on their outstanding performances.
Lancers wins first ever OUA Championship

For the first time ever, the University of Windsor Lancers are the OUA Women's Volleyball Champions. The visiting Lancers upset the #9 Toronto Varsity Blues 3-0 to win the conference crown and earn a place in next weekend's CIS Championship in Calgary.

Once in the lead, the University of Windsor Lancers never let up on the accelerator.

Both the men's and women's team built on leads established in the first day of competition and eventually romped to victory Saturday at the OUA track and field championships at the St. Denis Centre.

It was the second straight title for the women's team and the eighth straight title for the men.

Lancers advance to semi-finals with dramatic buzzer beater

The Lancer Men's Basketball team qualified for the OUA Semi-Finals in dramatic fashion this afternoon, with a buzzer beater victory over the Waterloo Warriors 61-58. The team has now won 7 of their last 8 games.
