Year in review
Cougars highlights from 2012
Todd Colin Vaughan
The year of 2012 was a groundbreaking year for the Mount Royal University Cougars.
Following years of dominating the Alberta Conferences Athletic Conference(ACAC), the Cougars finally made the move to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport(CIS) Canada West division.
This move was part of an ongoing plan that coincided with Mount Royal becoming a university, as well as the instituition’s 100 year anniversary.
This move meant the loss of old rivals like SAIT and Red Deer College, and the creation of new ones like the University of Alberta Golden Bears and Pandas, and the cross-town University of Calgary Dinos.
The rivalry with the Dinos has come to be known as the Crowchild Classic and will surely be part of Calgary sport for years to come.
With the big shift completed and the Cougars now entering their first full year in the CIS, Cougars fans will undoubtably be treated to a year of growth and excitement.
It takes years to build a competitive program and MRU has taken the first steps to achieving just that.
Good luck to the Cougars in 2013 and fans be sure to get out in the stands and support these cats.
