Friday, November 22, 2013: The Carleton University Athletics 2013-14 Season is well underway and is once again proving to be another successful campaign. Cosmos Sports is operating as the ticket sales department for the Carleton Ravens this season while also advising and assisting them with marketing, branding, group sales strategies and data collection. This partnership continues to grow by the day as the Cosmos Sports team works toward building connections in the community and attracting groups and associations to Carleton Ravens athletics.
The Carleton Ravens Men’s basketball team is off to another quick start in search of a remarkable tenth CIS Championship, and fourth in a row. The defending champions got off to a great start on November 1st at the Ravens Nest by knocking off a strong Windsor Lancers team. The Ravens then proceeded to crush the Western Mustangs 117-42. They went on to win the next four games on the road to improve to a fantastic 6-0 to start the year. The Ravens will be at home this weekend to take on Laurier and Waterloo before facing their cross-town rivals, the Ottawa Gee Gee’s on November 29th.
The Ravens Women’s basketball team also had a great start this season with a thrilling Victory at the Nest against the defending champions Windsor Lancers. With veteran Elizabeth Roach leading the way the Ravens are eager to improve their 4-2 record over the next couple weeks before taking the winter break.
Ravens Men’s and Women’s hockey is also in progress at the Ice House. There has been strong support for Ravens hockey already this year. The Men’s hockey game on Friday November 22nd against the Guelph Gryphons is already sold out. The Men’s team is looking to improve on their 6-4-1 record while the Women are looking to get a few more wins under their belt.
Finally, the return of Ravens Football this year, after a fifteen year hiatus, was met with great excitement and enthusiasm. The season came to an end in late October for the Carleton Ravens with them having little success on the field. However, this was an important year for Head Coach Steve Sumarah to build some valuable experience for this young team. Success off the field was ample, as the first two games of the year were sold out and tickets were a hot commodity. Fan experience at Ravens Field was fantastic and the Ravens are determined to improve on the field next season. Anticipation for the 2014 season is already building.
