Heat athletics opens new season

UBC Okanagan's soccer teams hope to build off the most successful season in the program's history, as the Heat men and women open the 2012 PacWest campaign this weekend on their home turf.

UBCO will play host to the Kwantlen Eagles on Saturday at Nonis Field. The women's game kicks off at 1 p.m., with the men taking to the field at 3 p.m.

On Sunday, the Douglas College Royals will provide the opposition with games set for noon and 2 p.m.

Last season, Claire Paterson and the women's team won the silver medal at provincials, while men's coach Dante Zanatta watched his team earn the bronze medal.

Heat golf…

This will be Jen Woods fifth and final year golfing for the Heat women’s squad, and the three-time provincial champion would like to capture another banner before finishing her eligibility.

New golf coach Mike Darnbrough also returns along with the the 2011-12 PacWest male golfer of the year, Cody Bell.  The veteran Bell and the new coach will lead the men’s team as they search for a championship banner to go with the three women’s championships earned by Woods and her teammates over the past three seasons.

 

The first weekend of competition will start with a two-day tournament at the Dunes in Kamloops, Sept. 8 and 9.
