Most of the marks in wrestling go to the women who had a strong year winning six medals at the CIS championship meet in the Jack Simpson Gym. Gen Haley (51 kg), Heidi Erdle (59 kg), Justine Bouchard (63 kg), Vanessa Wilson (67 kg), Erica Wiebe (72 kg) and Leah Callahan (82 kg) all beat their competitors to take the national title. It was a true team effort as the first years through to the seniors pulled their weight and managed to beat the nerves of hosting the finals.

The swim team continued its domination as the women took home a national championship this year, ending the University of British Columbia's 11-year reign. Erica Morningstar anchored the women's team, earning seven gold medals. The men grabbed second place at nationals, falling just 28 points shy of first. The team earns a near perfect score as they displayed hard work all year long and the women dominated Canadian swimming.

Despite solid efforts from fifth-years Courtney Coyle and Whitney Haswell, the women's basketball squad found themselves on the losing end one too many times this season. They only managed eight wins to their 14 losses, making for a frustrating season. A bright spot was their undefeated effort to win the Hoopwell Holiday Hoops tournament on home court during the Christmas break.

The track team did not improve upon last year's success, as the women finished fifth nationally and the men finished sixth. The teams saw some excellent individual performances from Sam Effah, Amonn Nelson, Danielle Kendall, Trent Ratzlaff and Heather Sim, all bringing home medals for the Dinos. Despite a slew of succesfull track athletes, the Dinos lack major competitors in the field events and this hurts their chances at a national championship. The Dinos will use a strong Calgary outdoor season to prepare for next year.

The Dino v-ballers rocked the red this year during the regular season, taking the Jack Simpson Gym by storm and refusing to lose at home. They finished the season ranked second in their conference and third nationally. Compared to last year, this year's team showcased considerable improvement on the defensive end, engineering stronger blocking patterns and more successful digs. Their service game was more consistent and the offensive front more aggressive.

With strong starters like Ross and Henry Bekkering and Robbie Sihota stepping up in key moments throughout the year, the men's basketball team plowed their way to the semi-finals of the Final 8 tournament in Ottawa. The team also relied on breakout season from Tyler Fidler. The regular season draw against UBC only heated up the Canada West play, where Calgary beat them on their home court to take the Canada West Championship ­-- a feat that will only strengthen what is now a legendary rivalry.

Perfection in sports is measured by the outcome, no matter the means taken to get there. The women's hockey team earns a perfect score as they managed to win the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference championship. The path to the gold was not perfect, but it was successful in the end. The Dinos were notorious for their slow starts in games and on several occasions this hurt them. The team featured some very talented rookies this year and they mixed well with the veterans.

It must be rather embarrassing to be the only team in Canada West not to make the playoffs. The Dinos missed the playoffs this season, the first time they have done so since 1985. The Dinos defence was shaky throughout most of the season, providing a hard time for starting netminder Jeff Weber. The offence was better, but unable to compensate for the poor defensive play. The Dinos looked lost this season as all-star Jared Aulin finished his CIS career the year before.

With new coach Jesse Knight manning the bench, the women's volleyball team slaughtered the competition this year and managed to take silver at the CIS championships. Of course the trio of seniors Holly Harper, Lauren Perry and Julie Young had their sights set on the gold, but considering they had four bronze medals before this year, the silver is a solid way to top off their storied careers. Fun to watch and intimidating to play against, the women's volleyball team had a superb season.
