OverviewEdit

"Wesmen" is the name of the sports teams of the University of Winnipeg, which is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The University was founded in 1967 when United College received its charter. United College was formed in 1938 with the merger of Manitoba College (established 1871) and Wesley College (established 1888). They are members of the Canada West Universities Athletic Association (CWUAA) and Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). They no longer compete in the hockey league.

HistoryEdit

The Winnipeg Wesmen hockey team started play in the WIAA in the 1968-69 season. In 1972-73 the WIAA split in two and the Wesmen joined Lakehead University, the University of Manitoba, and Brandon University as founding members of the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC). They were joined by the University of Regina in 1976-77.

The program folded following the 1983-84 season.
