Every week the Purple Pipe Podcast dedicates time to Mustang athletics. We talk to the athletes and coaches who matter most.

Episode 25 features Edie and Evra Levesque from the women's hockey team, who have advanced to the OUA finals for the second straight year.

Co-hosts Nathan Kanter and Serena Quinn talk with the guests about why they first picked up a hockey stick, why they chose Western, what it's like to go to an English university when French is your first language, how to prepare for the Guelph Gryphons and much more.

Rapid Fire reveals some interesting answers as well.

The McGaw Cup is set for 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 12, where Western will travel to Guelph for a one-game showdown. Follow @SportsAtGazette for live coverage or tune into the game on CHRW, 94.9. The game can also be live streamed on OUA.tv.


Nathan is the digital managing editor for volume 109 of the Western Gazette. Nathan studied MTP for his undergrad, a mixture of MIT at Western and television broadcasting at Fanshawe, before receiving his masters in journalism from Western last year.
