There are so-called winning dynasties in sports, and then there's the relentless domination for over two decades that the University of Western Ontario Mustangs have enjoyed in varsity men's squash. The Mustangs have won 23 consecutive men's titles in the Ontario University Athletics championships and Georgetown's Andrew Jones was a member of the most-recent Western team to achieve victory. The 24-yearold Jones was one of six Mustangs to win his match during a 6-0 sweep of the host McGill Redmen of Montreal in the final. A fifth-year student at Western who is looking to earn his teacher's college degree, the kinesiology program honours graduate always kept his squash game sharp and warmed to the thought of winning another provincial title. "I had taken a year off school and when I was planning on coming back for a fifth year to Western, the idea of playing on the squash team really got me excited," he said from his parents' Georgetown home. "Obviously we've got a pretty good stranglehold on the OUA Cup and I'm confident we can do well at the nationals." The Mustangs have qualified for the CIAU championships at the University of Toronto on March 10 and Jones has begun training in earnest. Winners from the national championships will gain a berth at the World University tournament in Budapest, Hungary later this year. Western's men dropped only five sets during the OUA tournament, even without all-stars Iain Crozier and Michael Auer.
