  • The Reds men’s hockey team won its third straight AUS title before a sell-out crowd of 3,374 at UNB's Aitken Centre. The Reds were the #1 seed and looking forward to defending its national title at the 2020 University Cup tournament scheduled for March 12-25, before it was cancelled.
  • Reds swimmers earn 13 medals at AUS championships, including five gold. The Reds finished third in the women's standings and fourth on the men's side and in the combined team standings with Leah Smal and Noah Horwood qualifying to compete at the U SPORTS Championships.
