Canada Summer Games continues

The 2017 Canada Summer Games continue to roll on, and with under a week left, let's see how Manitoba shaped up against the rest of the competition on Tuesday.

Women's Golf

The Manitoba women are well represented at the Canada Summer Games golf event and after day one, Manitoba is in a good position.

Bobbi Uhl shot the low round of the day for Manitoba with a 74, and Camryn Roadley was just behind at 75. Rebecca Kuik shot 84 for Manitoba to sit in a tie for 18th. Uhl is in a tie for 6th, while Roadley is in solo ninth place.

Men's Golf

Ryan McMillan knew heading into this week, he had a chance to win if he played well, and the top 10 finisher at the Manitoba Amateur did that exact thing on day one.

He shot a 69, which puts him in solo second place, behind Christoper Charles Vandette who shot a 67. Fellow Manitoban, Zach Wytinck is seven shots behind after his opening round 74.

Men's Soccer

On paper, it was a blowout, and on the field, it was as well as the Manitoba men's soccer team dominated Yukon to kick off their CSG on Tuesday, with a 5-0 win.

With the win, Manitoba now takes on Quebec tomorrow at 4:30, with first place on the line after Quebec, beat Yukon 11-0 on Monday.

Women's Softball

After a 1-1 day on Monday, the Manitoba women's softball team had a great chance to go 2-0 on Tuesday, but could not.

In game one, they took on Nova Scotia and dominated throughout en route to a 7-0 win. Game two pitted Manitoba against Quebec, and despite being the favourites heading in, Quebec took the win, 6-4.

Manitoba will play two more round robin games tomorrow, against Newfoundland and Labrador and British Columbia.


Manitoba's Reece Carter won her qualification match on Tuesday, 6-1, 6-2 over Nova Scotia's Anna Nicolela.

In the men's doubles competition, Manitoba proved to be no match for Saskatchewan, as they edged Manitoba, 6-3, 7-5.

Women's Volleyball

The Manitoba women's volleyball team played just one game on Tuesday, but their record is now 3-0. They beat Saskatchewan, 25-16, 19-25, 25-13, 25-19. They take on Prince Edward Island and British Columbia tomorrow.

Men's Volleyball

The Manitoba men's volleyball team rebounded in a big way after a loss against Ontario on Monday, with a 3-0 win on Tuesday against New Brunswick. They won 25-15, 25-15, 25-13. They now play one game tomorrow, against Alberta for second spot in Group A.


Manitoba now has 23 medals heading into competition on Wednesday, while Ontario leads the medal standings with 122.
