By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – The Bishop’s University women’s hockey team travelled over 1,200 km over the weekend for a series of six matches in three days. The men and women’s basketball teams faced McGill twice, in Montreal on Thursday and in Lennoxville on Saturday, but neither scored a win. In a thrilling tournament, the Bishop’s hockey team is currently 2-2 for the weekend, winning twice to Liberty University’s Division II team, once 8-1 and once 2-0. However, Liberty University’s Division I team was too strong for the Gaiters, who lost 9-1 on Saturday and 5-2 on Sunday. They also played the United States Naval Academy’s hockey team twice later Sunday evening. The Gaiters, still ranked #1 as of Sunday in the second division in the American Collegiate Hockey Association, will be back in action on Saturday, Feb. 9, in Lennoxville against Northeastern University. See full story in the Monday, Jan. 28 edition of The Record.
