September standings for Brock Badgers

Regular season games didn’t start for all team sports for the month of September, but there have been a few notable results.

Badgers teams that started the regular season in September include Men’s rugby, who were fifth in OUA, with a record of one win and one loss. Women’s rugby ended the month at sixth place in the OUA. They had a record of two wins and two losses going into October.

Overall, the badgers have definitely been doing more winning than losing, however, no teams are currently leading the OUA in standings. While this might be subject to change with teams such as Badgers’ men’s and women’s basketball, who were both at the top last season, time will have to tell its tale.
