As has become tradition here at the Gazette, we celebrate another exciting and successful season of Western Mustangs athletics with our annual Gazzies. From provincial championships to U Sports medals to success in the classrooms and around the community, Mustangs athletes have represented our school well this season. As the year comes to a close, we congratulate our Gazzie winners, nominees and all athletes across campus on a fantastic 2018-19. See you next year!
