Almost 1,000 alumni and friends filled the stands at the Physical Activities Complex (PAC) Saturday for Fantastic Alumni, Faculty, Staff and Retiree Day.

Donning University of Waterloo apparel from decades past, alumni, family and friends cheered the Warriors to victory in both the women’s and men’s games. The women beat Windsor 51-42 and the men took the Lancers to overtime for a 73-68 win.

Proudly watching in the stands was Mano Watsa (BA 99) whose son, Issac Watsa (BA in progress), wears #3 for the UWaterloo men’s basketball team. Mano himself was a point guard for UWaterloo from 1994 to 1999 and is a Waterloo Warriors Hall of Fame inductee.
