CIS Corner: Ravens skier will rule the world

Notes on our teams/athletes of interest from The 613 ...

There has been a lot of blogeteriat buzz about Myron Rolle, the Florida State football player who has won a Rhodes scholarship.

Well, here in Ottawa, Carleton student Alysia Garmulewicz, a one-time Ravens nordic skier, has also won the Rhodes. A little Googling reveals that Garmulewicz appeared on the show Canada's Next Great Prime Minister and, somewhat more importantly, has organized conferences on climate change, in hope that future generations might get to glide around on a thin pair of skis.

There is nothing more that can be added from here, other than to wish Alysia Garmulewicz all the best, although with what she has going for her, she probably won't need the good wishes from the like-to-sleep-in set.


  • Gee-Gees: That's a hard-luck hockey team at the U of 0 -- last night's 4-3 decision against McGill marked their third straight overtime/shootout loss. The shots were 36-18 for the Redmen, who seem to be hitting their stride after a rough start.

    Carleton and McGill seem likely to tussle for the No. 3 playoff seed. Ottawa could end up No. 6, which whets the appetite for a cross-town playoff series in February.

    Queen's is already giving ground in the playoff race. It will only have 11 games left after it finishes the first half this weekend against No. 2-ranked UQTR and Concordia at home this weekend.

  • Ravens: Remember when Carleton played the Kansas Jayhawks three months ago and shot 62% on three-pointers? That was against a program that, before its game last night against Syracuse (who won again?), had held 113 of its past 116 opponents below 50% shooting. That's how good Carleton is.
