During the 2016-17 season, the Carleton University Department of Recreation and Athletics had student participation that included 250 U SPORTS athletes, 148 OUA athletes and 508 Competitive Club athletes.
Our varsity teams finished this past season with one U SPORTS championship and three OUA banners. The 11th annual Capital Hoops Classic, played at Canadian Tire Centre against the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees, saw both the Ravens men and women’s basketball teams sweep the Gee-Gees for the first time since 2013. In the 48th annual Panda Game at TD Place Stadium, a record crowd of 23,329 fans – the largest U SPORTS football attendance in the past two decades – witnessed the Ravens come out victorious against the GeeGees for the third straight year!
The Ravens boasted seven U SPORTS All-Canadians, two U SPORTS All-Rookie Team selections, 47 OUA All-Stars, five OUA All-Rookie picks, two RSEQ All-Stars, one RSEQ All-Rookie representative, two OUA Coach of the Year awards and one U SPORTS Coach of the Year honour.
The men’s basketball program continued its success by achieving a record-setting 13th U SPORTS national championship in the last 15 years, including a record-tying seventh in a row. The women’s basketball team had its best-ever season by winning the program’s first national medal as the team captured a bronze at the U SPORTS Women’s Final 8 Basketball Championship.
