#10: GORAN VLASKI – SOCCER

He’s a first-team OUA all-star and led his squad to their first historic post-season win. Captain Vlaski won’t let any player slip by him on your team.

#9: LINDSAY FRANCO – VOLLEYBALL

Franco was nominated for Female Athlete of the Year last season. She brings her leadership and strong volleyball IQ to the court.

#8: LISA GOLDRING – BASKETBALL

Goldring is the team’s backbone and a high-scorer. She’s quick, a leader on the court and gives your all-star team the extra push.

#7: OLEH KOVALCHUK – VOLLEYBALL

You can count on Kovalchuk to strike fear in the opposition. His 3.89 points a game and intense play make him the sixth best player in the league.

#6: ALLISON LOOSLEY – ROWING

Loosley won one of Ryerson’s first gold medals in rowing. Her endurance and strength will leave her competitors struggling in her wake.

#5: LEAH SAAR –  VOLLEYBALL

This first-year player is already a veteran on the court. With an average of four points a game, she is one of the team’s strongest players.

#4: MATT BUIE  – ROWING

Buie medalled twice this year after training for the entire summer. He has enough heart and raw talent to give your team the edge it needs.

#3: TESSA DIMITRAKOPOULOS – SOCCER

Dimitrakopoulos has led the Rams in scoring for the past three years. Her leadership and work ethic have earned her a tryout with Team Canada at the World University Games. This soccer star is also a threat on the ice — adding depth and strength to any team.

#2: BORIS BAKOVIC – BASKETBALL

He’ll do anything to come out with the victory. Bakovic leads the OUA with almost 27 points per game this season and was ranked second in Canada last year. His championship qualities earned him a spot on Canada’s U-19 team in 2007.

#1 ANDREA RASO – SOCCER

Even though she moved from striker to midfield this season, her instincts and technical ability are second to none. She’s full of intensity, energy and determination. Ryerson’s first female CIS All-Canadian had offers from schools in the United States, but she turned them down to play for the Rams. Her loyalty and comprehensive knowledge of the game make her the strongest athlete at Ryerson.
