Masse Recognizes Women’s Basketball and Men’s Track and Field Teams
Mr. Brian Masse (Windsor West, NDP): Mr. Speaker, it is with the pride of the Lancer Nation that I rise today in the House to acknowledge the University of Windsor women’s basketball and men’s track and field team. Both recently won their respective national championships in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport.
The Lancer women’s basketball team has etched its place in history as one of only two teams to win five national championships in a row, and it remains the unquestioned benchmark in the CIS.
The Lancer men’s track and field team has an equally impressive legacy of dominance in the CIS competition. The 2015 title marks the 20th time that the Lancer men’s team has won the national championship.
Both squads compete with determination and discipline, embodying the character of their coaches and the community that supports them.
Coaches Chantal Vallée and Dennis Fairall , both recognized as coach of the year in their respective sports, have built programs around a very simple philosophy: Team first and do not quit. Win.
I congratulate the entire Lancer family on these incredible accomplishments and wish them continued success. Go, Lancers!
