Week Ending November 6, 2016
Carleton Ravens football player Jesse Mills (Halifax, NS) is this week’s TSN 1200 Male Athlete of the Week.
Mills, who suited up in the final game of his Ravens career in a 51-24 loss to the Western Mustangs in the OUA semifinal on November 5, had a solid outing despite the unfavourable outcome.
The fifth-year quarterback threw for 426 yards against Western, which was the second highest single-game total of his career behind his 450-yard output against York in 2013.
Mills’ 48 pass attempts tied a Carleton record set by Sean O’Neill in 1997 against Queen’s. The 6-foot-4 gunslinger’s 30 completions also tied a school single-game record that was set by Cam Collins in 1983 against Queen’s.
The native of Halifax, NS threw for three touchdown passes in his final U Sports game.
Jesse is enrolled in Communication Studies at Carleton.
Carleton Ravens fencing teammates Emese Dukai-Branscombe (Victoria, BC), Sharon Schuppe (Burlington, VT) and Sophie de Kok (Rotterdam, Netherlands) are the TSN 1200 Female Athletes of the Week.
Dukai-Branscombe, Schuppe and de Kok competed against a deep field at the RMC Invitational in Kingston, ON over the weekend, where the trio won the gold medal in the women’s Epee event. It was Carleton’s first 1st place finish during the 2016-17 season.
Dukai-Branscombe and Schuppe, who are both fourth-year student-athletes, were members of the Epee team that captured a bronze at last year’s OUA Championship. De Kok, an international student from Holland, has fit in well with her new teammates by adding speed and skill to one of the conference’s top fencing relay teams.
Emese and Sharon study in Carleton’s PAPM program, while de Kok is enrolled in Business and Data Analytics at Carleton.
