Ravens vs. Gee-Gees: Colonel By Classic preview

Since the return of the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees men’s hockey program in 2016, the two schools have made a bigger effort to promote and make an event of their rivalry game. The second annual Colonel By Classic will take place on Nov. 17 at the TD Arena. The Ravens are the current holders of the Colonel By Classic banner after a 6-2 win last year.

Carleton Ravens win fourth Panda Game in a row

In front of another record-breaking, sell-out crowd, the Carleton Ravens marked their fourth consecutive Panda Game victory, defeating the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees by a score of 33-30 in double overtime. “This game is such a rivalry, this game is talked about weeks in advance and when you walk on that field there’s a whole lot of pride in both programs,” said Carleton Ravens head coach Steve Sumarah. But, this year’s Panda Game opened up with a deeper meaning to both sides. Carleton, coming off a blowout win last season, looked to turn around their season after a disappointing 1-3 start. For the U of O, tragedy rocked the team with the sudden death of defensive lineman […]

Quarterback Michael Arruda looking to soar with Carleton

Michael Arruda has succeeded at every level he has played at. Starting at Philemon Wright High School in Gatineau, Quebec,  Arruda quickly rose through the ranks of Quebec-born players. By the time he had entered CEGEP, he had already represented and won a Bol D’or (the Quebec championship for both high school and CEGEP) with his high school team. With early success, he was able to make a name for himself as an impressive quarterback. Already a highly touted prospect coming out of high school, he attended Champlain-Lennoxville, a CEGEP just outside of Sherbrooke, QC. He attended the school for three years, starting in both his second and third years on the team. During his time at Champlain, he also […]
