The Canadian Interuniversity Sport Swimming Championship held at Universite Laval Feb. 24-26 mirrored the Canada West Championship that took place a month earlier. Since no word exists to describe the domination that took place, I'll make one up: the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds thromplasted the competition. The Dinos were a solid second behind their T-Bird rivals.

In the two weeks approaching the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Women's Volleyball Championship, the Dinos women's volleyball team have been rudely awakened. Having a secure spot at the national championship as hosts, they slept comfortably all season dreaming of the final few games. With those games now upon us, our ladies must recover from the buckets of water they were doused with, the intense light switched on overhead and the blasting music of their alarm clocks that have plagued them throughout the Canada West playoffs.

The Dinos women's hockey team went into the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference quarter-finals as the underdog Feb. 16-17. With a 2-18 record they were up against the SAIT Trojans, who went 13-5-1-1 in the season. With some last-minute changes, head coach Dean Holden was trying to shake things up a little, hoping to find some new team dynamic. But what the Dinos really needed were the talents and size of Robyn Chapman and injured player Jen Cabana who were both unable to play.

Yes, another battle of Alberta--a term used precisely 302,291,204 times a year. It probably contains more action and generates more discussions than a Paris Hilton sex tape.

Okay, maybe not. But the Dinos men's hockey team clinching home-ice advantage for the first round of Canada West playoffs in their last home game of the regular season isn't bad entertainment either. The Dinos completed the mission in front of more than 400 fans against the top-ranked University of Alberta Golden Bears.
