    Default Gee-Gees World Champions

    To heck with the Other Leagues thread that hardly anybody reads. This women's football game deserves better.

    I always hope that all the uOttawa teams win conference and/or national championships. A world title --now that is rare. They did Canada proud!!

    This morning the undefeated Gee-Gees won the first ever Women's World Cup of University Soccer. They defeated Paulista University of Brazil 1-0.

    Mikayla Morton scored the only goal on a header less than 2 minutes into the game. She was the OUA leading goal scorer this season. It was the only goal scored on Paulista during the whole tournament.

    Note: Kudos to the game play-by -play guy on the FISU web cast. He had a British accent and like most Brits he really knew what the @#$% a Gee-Gee is.

    Gee-Gee Trinity Espirit was named MVP of the tournament. Amazing when you consider that she is a teenager rookie with the Gee-Gees.

    Captain Katherine Delev received the tournament Fair Play Award.

    Founded in 1848, the University of Ottawa adopted its official colours Garnet and Grey, and like many nineteenth-century institutions, the athletics teams were known only by the school's colours. Eventually, a connection was made between the shorthand "GGs" and "Gee-Gee", the common British nickname for a racehorse. The unique Gee-Gees name and iconic logo known today is a result of 170 years of history in Ottawa
