Fans at Sunday’s football game at Richardson Stadium won’t be able to see any of the work that’s been done for the new facility these past six weeks.

But they will be able to park on it.

All people at the Ontario University Athletics season opener will see of the early work for the new stadium will be a pristine parking surface east of the current structure, some footings for the parking lot lights, and some excavation work underway at the southeast corner of the stadium.

Underneath, all of the site services—sanitary and storm sewers, water works, electricity and communications infrastructure—have been put in place, ready to be connected to Richardson III, which is scheduled to be completed in time for the opening of the 2016 football season.

MONTREAL, Aug. 23—They really didn’t look like two rookie quarterbacks.

Not quite a rookie—he took a handful of snaps last year, mopping up in a few games as a freshman—Nate Hobbs of the Queen’s Golden Gaels looked terrific in his first intercollegiate start, completing nine of 14 passes, one of them for a touchdown, as he staked his team to a seven-point at halftime.

The other, Trenton Miller of the Concordia Stingers, was playing his first game of Canadian university football. The Buffalo, N.Y., native, a transfer from the University of South Florida, drove his team for two fourth-quarter scores, including a touchdown with less than three minutes to play that gave his team a 21-18 exhibition victory over the Gaels.

Nick Romanchuk finds himself in an interesting situation.

By virtue of it being his fifth year with the Queen’s Golden Gaels, it would be incumbent on him to be a leader among the team’s offensive linemen, and Romanchuk is eager to embrace the role. “It’s exciting,” he said. “Being the senior guy I’m trying to do what I can to set an example.”

Goodness knows a line that started five new players a year ago could use some veteran wisdom but the fact, is, Romanchuk has never been a starter, and, thanks to a knee injury that cost him all of the 2014 season, he’s played less than some of the players two or three years his junior.

There are experienced athletes. Then there are athletes who have distinguished themselves over a long period of time who earn the right to be called veterans.

Then there’s Lesley Thompson-Willie.

And there she is again, listed among competitors who will represent Canada at the world rowing championships later this month, prominent not only for an impeccable record in international competition, but for the fact that none of her teammates were born when she debuted on the international rowing stage.

Once again, Thompson-Willie, 56, will be the coxswain for the Canadian women’s eight when the championship regatta convenes Aug. 30 at Lake Aiguebelette, near Chamberly, France.
