The Road to the 2022 OUS Championships

As another OUS regular season has come to an end, the always exciting 2022 OUS Championships are about ready to begin. The tournament will be played this year at Hillside Park in Waterloo, Ontario. As we’ve returned to a post COVID league championship, the league has also returned to the double knockout format to determine our provincial champion.

Heading into the playoff tournament, we’ll see a rematch of last year’s final, with the defending champion Western Mustangs (18-0) playing the East Division’s fourth place club, the Ottawa Gee-Gees (9-9). The first round continues with the Toronto Varsity Blues (14-6) hosting the Windsor Lancers (10-10), making their first playoff appearance in several years. On the opposite side of the bracket are the Brock Badgers (15-3), hosting the third seed York Lions (12-6), also making their first playoff appearance in quite a few years. The East Division’s top seeded Queen’s Gaels (15-3) will close out the bracket by playing the tournament host, Laurier Golden Hawks (10-10).

We look forward to welcoming as many fans, friends, and family out to Hillside to encourage the fantastic student athletes of Ontario University Softball. It should be an amazing finale to a great season of softball here in Ontario. Check out the bracket below, the action kicks off Saturday, October 22 at 9am.
