Let the hazing begin

By Sean Nyilassy

While this year’s Dinos football squad had a good run, help for next year is on the way. Four Calgary-area high schoolers have confirmed their attendance to our prestigious institution in Fall 2005.

Lady hockeysaurs flee by the dozen

By Lee Bogle and Sean Nyilassy

Four years, three different coaches, two different leagues and one degree. These are a few of the adventures of the Dinos women’s hockey players that spent their four years of eligibility here.

The track listing reads as a “who’s who” of second-rate stars, and they’re so abundant it should be classified as a… Continue reading Spun: Pitbull
