- Ottawa native Kadie Riverin is going to the Canadian women's basketball team training camp next month in Barrie. The Rice University did well with the U21 team last summer and she's long enough (at 5-foot-9) to play either guard spot, so that should help her cause. (Yours truly wrote a feature on her for the dead-tree medium a while back.)
OK, so Riverin didn't play in the CIS, but this is another reminder that The CIS Blog is always looking for contributors. You wouldn't want your humble servant to be accused of being Ontario-centric, not to mention any number of damning -isms.
- Queen's women's basketball coach Dave Wilson's Canada Basketball assignment for the summer is with the junior women's national team ... the hoops Gaels also announced that a Kingston native, 5-foot-10 Richelle Gaudet, is committed for next season.
- Volleyball is more Bucholtz's bag, so he'll be pleased to know that the Golden Gaels' recruiting class includes Ottawa native Alex Oneid, who was a main cog in the Glebe Gryphons juggernaut that won the OFSAA quad-A championship last November. The capital should be a Queen's pipeline, at least until the U of Ottawa has its men's varsity program up and running in a couple years' time (thanks for the tip).
