Seven Ravens set to compete at 28th Winter Universiade in Kazakhstan

Written by Carleton Sports Information

OTTAWA, ON — Seven Carleton Ravens representatives have been named to the 122-member U Sports delegation set to compete at the 28th Winter Universiade in Almaty, Kazakhstan from January 29 – February 8, 2017.

Four members of the Ravens men’s hockey team – Corey Durocher (Ottawa, ON), Michael McNamee (Perth, ON), Ryan Van Stralen (Prescott, ON) and Brett Welychka (London, ON) – along with head coach Marty Johnston, Nordic skier Carrington Pomeroy (Chelsea, QC) and Alpine skier Hannah Schmidt (Dunrobin, ON) will embark on a once-in-a-lifetime sporting experience to Central Asia to compete against the world’s top university student-athletes.

Carleton’s men’s hockey program will be well represented on the international stage, as four of its top five scorers will lead the Canadian front line on a team comprised of the top players from the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) conference. Ravens bench boss Marty Johnston, now in his seventh year as Carleton head coach and tenth year overall with the team, will serve as an assistant coach.

Nordic skier Carrington Pomeroy, who has been named an OUA All-Star in each of his first three seasons of university competition, will participate in his first Winter Universiade. Pomeroy’s success with Carleton includes three team podium finishes at the OUA Championships, including one OUA gold medal (2014-15) and two silver medals (2013-14 and 2015-16). Pomeroy also won a bronze medal with teammates Brendon Howard at last year’s Canadian College and University Nordic Championships.

Ravens Alpine skier Hannah Schmidt will take to the slopes in Almaty as she joins a talented group of Canadians looking to medal in a variety of racing events. Schmidt, the Ravens Alpine team captain, had a stellar 2015-16 season with several podium finishes on the RSEQ circuit last year, including a first-place showing at Le Relais. Schmidt won the RSEQ Newcomer of the Year along with being named a First-Team All-Star after completing the year ranked third overall in the standings.
