Overview[edit | edit source]

"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 U Sports (formerly known as CIS). They no longer compete in the hockey league.

History[edit | edit source]

The Winnipeg Wesmen hockey team started play in the WCIAA in the 1968-69 season. In 1972-73 the WCIAA 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.
