Sevens in the sunshine

By Kelley Caldwell Over the summer the SFU Rugby Club played in a series of “sevens” tournaments. Instead of the usual fifteen players in a game there are, as the name suggests, only seven. The emphasis is on running, which makes for a very fast-paced game. SFU hosted its ninth annual sevens tournament in July. […]

Track Wrap-Up

By Peter Cardle Highlighting SFU’s trip to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) championships in Azusa, California was a 1-2 finish in the women’s high jump.

Forget Shrum Bowl This Year

By Jim Dehaas Say it isn’t so. There will be no Shrum Bowl game in 1994. That’s the rumour? Unfortunately the ugly rumour is true. But it’s an annual event, right? Well, almost. The crosstown grudge match has delighted students at both SFU and UBC a total of 17 times since the first game was […]

An optimistic soccer season

By Jeremy Dunn With the World Cup having been held on North American soil for the first time, soccer interest is now at an all-time high across the continent.

The Clanswomen created more opportunities for themselves in addition to controlling the momentum of the game. They simply went to the ball with more determination and displayed superior ball control in the midfield, […]

David Munro says Goodbye

By Jeremy Dunn The magic is gone. After four years of offensive majesty, David Munro has said his final good-byes to the faithful fans of the SFU Clansmen. Munro has been a great offensive player throughout his career here at SFU, and finally put it all together this year. Munro broke every record that a […]

In Line Skating

By Diana Compton It’s one of the fastest growing sports of the 1990’s and everybody is doing it. In-line skating is catching on everywhere. From the very athletic to the very uncoordinated, people of all ages and all skill levels are “getting in-line”. They are skating for exercise, for speed, for transportation, or just plain […]

In their first game the Clan took on Central Washington University and spanked them 11-6. A score that […]

Clan Rugby Team Goes for Men’s Collegiate Title

By Tim Pulfrey Sometimes it may seem that the SFU Rugby Club have put themselves in over their heads by making the large step up to first division play. Of course you won’t find anybody playing for the club at any division who feels that way. The second division side has been spread thin and […]
