A big thanks to Katherine Harman and Candice Stapleton who showed up and ran like champs to support the cause!

Held on Saturday, March 17, the Wildcat Cup is an annual event that has the School of Physiotherapy First Years face off against their senior counterparts, the Second Years, in 7 grueling events for serious “bragging rights”.
A special thank you to the students and faculty who participated or came out and watched, supported or cheered on their favourite Wildcat Cup participant. Once again, shout outs go to Carolyn King who was decked out in St. Paddy’s Day wear, Katherine Harman for cheering on both classes, and Cheryle Kelm who swung by the Sexton campus on Saturday afternoon.
Instructor, Candice Stapleton was a fabulous addition to the Second Year’s team and participated in most sports. Her skills really shone later in the day when she won a “jigg-off” vs. First Year Kate Grandy.
At the end of the day, the First Years reigned triumphant in capturing the Wildcat Cup with a ton of fun had by all.
Not only are PT students excellent students, they are also competitive and avid Dal Intramural participants. There are a few teams that deserve special recognition.
Last Monday, March 19th the PT Broomball team lost a tough semi-final match, resulting in a top 4 finish on the season. Props to two super-fans Carolyn King and Cheryle Kelm who came out and cheered on the team. Last week, the girls backed up their 1st place outdoor season with winning the Dal indoor intramural soccer league. Champs x2! Nicely done ladies.
Also honorable mention to our inner-tube water polo, co-ed basketball and co-ed volleyball teams who also had fantastic seasons.
Not to be forgotten, the Physio intramural hockey team (pictured above) has been battling mightily in the play-offs.
No one can ever say that PT students are all work and no play… or boring!
