Week Ending November 22, 2015
Van Stralen (Prescott, ON) was a prime factor in helping the Ravens successfully earn two wins and full points on the road in Toronto this past weekend.
The sophomore forward scored Carleton’s second and third goals (both at even strength) in Friday night’s 4-3 win against the Ryerson Rams at the Mattamy Athletic Centre. The following night at Varsity Arena versus U of T, Van Stralen continued his scoring ways by adding a third period insurance marker against the Varsity Blues in a 4-1 victory.
Van Stralen’s three snipes on the weekend brought his season total to a team-high of 10 goals. The former Ottawa 67’s player has already surpassed his total of 8 goals from last season and is currently ranked fourth on the team in scoring with 15 points (10 goals, 5 assists) in only twelve games. The 6’3″ power forward has been lighting the lamp recently with goals in four straight OUA regular season games.

In just her third game of the season, Elizabeth Leblanc (London, ON) posted big numbers in Carleton’s 67-29 triumph over the Algoma Thunderbirds.
Leblanc, a second-year forward, scored 12 points, and also added 6 rebounds and 5 assists to fill the stat sheet. The 6’1″ sophomore was a perfect 6-6 from the free throw line, and she also knocked down two 3-point shots to compliment her versatile inside/outside game.
Leblanc also played a team-high of 27 minutes against the Thunderbirds and has made her way into the starting line-up in two of the three regular season games she has featured in to date.
The 2014-15 OUA All-Rookie Team selection continues to show signs of improvement game-by-game. Leblanc is currently second on the Ravens with 11.3 points per game and she sits in third in rebounding with 5.0 boards per contest.
Elizabeth is studying Psychology at Carleton University.
