Swimming – The Cougars will send their largest contingent of swimmers to the Canada West meet in recent memory this weekend, with eight to represent the men’s team and four on the women’s side. Noah Choboter, Daniel Gomez, Mitchell Hebert, Brent Hill, Marcell Madar, Chris Myers, Oscar Vila, and Noah Wasyliw will wear U of R caps on the men’s side, while Ophelie Coughlan, Jacee Kaczmar, Lexy King, and Eva Madar will make up the women’s team. The three-day meet is hosted by UBC and runs from Friday to Sunday.

Men's Hockey – The Cougars (4-10-0) will close out their 2015 schedule with a rare Thursday/Friday series at The Co-operators Centre with the Manitoba Bisons in town. The team is coming off a road sweep over the Lethbridge Pronghorns, winning 7-4 on Friday and 8-4 on Saturday. Ian McNulty had a hat trick on Friday and J.J. Coleshaw followed it up with one of his own on Saturday to bump the Cougars' win streak to three games. Both Thursday’s and Friday’s games have 7 p.m. scheduled starts.
Men’s Volleyball – Coming off their bye week, the Cougars (1-9) return to the court this weekend with a pair of home matches against a University of Manitoba team that comes in with an 8-2 Canada West record and the No. 3 ranking in the CIS. The Cougars and the Bisons will start following the conclusion of the women’s match on both nights, with a scheduled start time of 7:30 p.m. on Friday and 6:30 p .m. on Saturday.

Women’s Volleyball – After numerous lineup changes over the past few matches due to a spate of injuries, last weekend’s bye probably couldn’t have come at a better time for the Cougars. And they’re back in action this weekend at the Centre for Kinesiology, Health & Sport as they’ll look to get one in the win column against Manitoba (1-9). Match time is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Friday and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Track & Field – The Cougars have their first meet of the 2015-16 season this Saturday, as they’ll compete in the Intrasquad Meet split between the CKHS and the Regina Fieldhouse. Events start at 9 a.m. upstairs at the CKHS and continue at the Regina Fieldhouse starting at 2 p.m.
Women’s Basketball (CIS Ranking: No. 5) – The Cougars (4-0) moved up one spot in the CIS Top Ten after a pair of convincing wins over Lethbridge, defeating the Pronghorns by scores of 86-44 and 74-54 at the CKHS. They’re one of three undefeated teams remaining in Canada West’s Pioneer Division, and this weekend they’ll go head-to-head with another team that has yet to lose in Canada West play – the Cougars and No. 10-ranked Alberta (6-0) will play on Friday and Saturday night at the Saville Centre on the U of A campus.

Men’s Basketball – The Cougars suffered their first Canada West loss of the season last Friday after an 83-76 setback to Lethbridge, but smoked the Pronghorns by a 90-66 count on Saturday to finish with a weekend split. Now 3-1 on the season, the Cougars are tied for third place in the Pioneer Division and continue conference play this weekend with two road games at Alberta (2-4).

Women's Hockey – The Cougars (5-5-3-1) hit the road this weekend for the last time in 2015 to take on the Manitoba Bisons. Kylie Gavelin is fresh off a Canada West Second Star of the Week nod after notching five points in the team’s 3-0 and 3-2 wins over Lethbridge last weekend. Gavelin is riding a seven-game point streak that has seen her score six goals and add nine assists over that span. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Friday and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Wrestling (Men’s CIS Ranking: No. 5 / Women’s CIS Ranking: No. 5) – The Cougars hosted their only home event of the year on the weekend, and Waylon Decoteau placed first in the men's 100-kilogram event. Seven other Cougars wrestled their way to a podium finish, while the men's team placed second in the team standings and the women's team finished third. The teams will now take a month-long break from competition until the Golden Bears Invitational in early January.
