2017 FISU Winter Universiade Report: Monday, January 30

Written by Carleton Sports Information

ALMATY, KAZAKHSTAN — The 2017 FISU Winter Universiade got underway for Carleton’s Canadian representatives on Monday, and it was a busy day for Ravens student-athletes in several competitions.


Ravens forward Brett Welychka (London, ON) showed his eye for goal in Canada’s 6-0 shutout victory against the United States at Almaty’s Halyk Arena. The second-year forward buried two identical one-timer power-play goals – one in the second and one in the third –  from the left circle to help complete the rout.


Also making an impact in Canada’s opening-game win was Ravens captain Michael McNamee (Perth, ON), who chipped in with two assists against the Americans, both of which came on Welychka’s goals.

Canada’s men’s hockey team will face Great Britain in Game 2 on Wednesday, February 1 at 5 a.m. ET.


Ravens Nordic skier Carrington Pomeroy (Chelsea, QC) competed in his first race of the Universiade, finishing the 10 km individual classic  in 57th place with a time of 28:36.9.

Additional cross-country events continue on January 31.


Hannah Schmidt (Dubrobin, ON) of Ravens Alpine got off to a strong start in the Women’s Super G event, completing her day in 18th place by clocking in with a time of 1:09.51.
