Steve Sumarah voted top Reader’s Choice coach

This past season, Carleton Ravens football head coach Steve Sumarah led the Ravens to their best finish since getting their return in 2013, reaching the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Semifinals, before falling to the Western Mustangs. For his efforts this season, Sumarah earned 66 votes, and earned The Charlatan Reader’s Choice award. “He’s a huge players coach. What that means from a players perspective is that he always cares about his players on a personal level,” former Ravens quarterback Jesse Mills said. “He’s not somebody who treats their players like they are just a person who shows up to practice to do their stuff.

Five athletes selected to Readers’ Choice All-star team

Connor Wood Men’s basketball 27 votes Connor Wood was the only returning starter on a squad that was doubted by many. Nevertheless, he and the Ravens men’s basketball team won yet another Canadian Interuniversity Sport Final 8 this season. He averaged 13.4 points per game this season and was one of the Ontario University Athletics’ (OUA) biggest three point threats, shooting 47.8 per cent from deep. While his biggest weapon was his shot, Wood was also able to score off the dribble, either pulling up for a quick jumper or finishing at the rim.
