It is with an extreme pleasure that I’m sharing with you how my teammates and I won this year Ontario University Athletics tennis title. It is with absolute pride that I am wearing the blue colors of the Carabins tennis (Montreal University sports teams). I have succeeded to win my 18 matches without even dropping a single set. Being undefeated gives me a marvelous feeling ^_^
On the other hand, I must also apologize to you all. I wish I could blog more often, I love blogging, I really do, but since this new school year, my schedule is insane. Not only have I started my Master’s degree in e-Commerce, I am also studying advanced Chinese and I am training hard to keep my shape for the University tennis season (it was worth it: OUA CHAMPS!).
Even for my dearest friends, I can’t find time to spend with them: the only moments I could share with them is when they come cheer during my tennis games or when we study together (…) I want to take a moment here to thank all my friends who are always there for me and who do not hate me for the lack of time I have for them. I promise to go back to the society after this semester of 26 credits. I love you all, you are my superstars.
article about our victory (I know, I almost dropped the trophy)
It is Montreal’s first ever OUA women’s tennis championship, as the Carabins capped a perfect 9-0 season in OUA competition.
The trio of Isabelle Chrun (Montreal, Que.), Céline Bélanger-Wauthier (Chicoutimi, Que.) and Léna Salgado (Montreal, Que.) were major factors in Montreal’s victory. All three posted singles victories, while Bélanger-Wauthier and Salgado teamed up to defeat Shaza Nessim (Cairo, Egypt) and Adalia Quek (Toronto, Ont.) 8-0 in doubles action. Chrun downed Sabina Kalo (North York, Ont.) in straight sets 6-3, 6-0, Salgado defeated Aina Roszkowski (Toronto, Ont.) 6-3, 6-1 and Bélanger-Wauthier handled Paloma Jimenez (Dominican Republic) 6-0, 6-1. Chrun also teamed up with Anne-Marie Belleau (Gatineau, Que.) to defeat Henar Bolteya (Cairo, Egypt) and Julia Khalilova (Etobicoke, Ont.) in doubles play 8-1.
