Rams year in review

In SportsLeave a Comment

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This was the year of almost for Ryerson sports teams, which is pretty impressive considering our teams usually don’t come close to being able to say almost.

The men’s basketball team had an amazing year, finishing with a 24-5 overall record, but failed to earn a return trip to the national finals after a shocking playoff loss to Queen’s University in Sudbury.

The women’s basketball team nearly toppled the top-ranked Laurentian Lady Vees in the playoffs, but ended up losing to the home team in the final 10 minutes. T

The hockey team needed to win its last game in Sudbury to secure its first playoff appearance in more than a decade, btu a power-play goal by Laurentian in the dying minutes ended the Rams’ season early.

We don’t have much luck in Sudbury.

But on the bright side:

  • The women’s volleyball team made the postseason for the first time in school history.
  • The figure skating team placed second in the OUA finals in the synchronized skating event.
  • Badminton partners Long Quan and JoAnne Wong were the top team in the province.
  • Dave Quane, of Ryerson’s swim team, finished ninth in the 50-metre breaststroke at the Canadian university championships.

An Mark Peros of Ryerson’s fencing team was third in the sabre event at the OUA finals.
