Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

It’s been 10 years since Laurier won the Vanier Cup. We would like to extend an invitation to our alumni in the Saskatoon region or anyone else making the trip out there to join Laurier President & Vice-Chancellor Dr. Max Blouw, Vice-President: Academic & Provost Dr. Deborah MacLatchy, Director of Athletics & Recreation Peter Baxter, and Vice President of Student Affairs David McMurray for a pre-game reception to celebrate the Hawks vs. Huskies Vanier Cup Anniversary re-match.

This will be a great opportunity for alumni to meet Laurier’s senior administrative staff and to reconnect with fellow Golden Hawks before the kickoff of the game at 7pm.

Date: Friday August 21, 2015
Time: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Local Summer Football
The Cambridge Lions season came to an end Saturday night in Windsor as they lost a hard fought playoff game to the Essex Ravens 45-20. Considering the number of injuries the Lions suffered to key players this season, it is a great accomplishment to make it as far as they did.
