Elizabeth Roach has played in over 100 games for the Carleton University women’s basketball team during her five years with the program but Saturday night will be her last regular season contest with the Ravens.

The Ottawa, Ontario native joined the women’s team in 2009 and over time has developed into the face of the program and what it means to be a Carleton Raven.

“Elizabeth is the epitome of what our program is all about,” said Taffe Charles, Ravens head coach.

“She’s had a great career and one of the main reasons for our program’s success. Elizabeth has done everything I’ve asked her to do and made a commitment to get better every season. She exceeded my expectations and been a wonderful role model.”

The Political Science major has been to two National Championships and played in 14 playoff games along the way.

This year, Roach will be looking to go out in style with another trip to nationals.

But for now, the Ravens (14-6) are competing for top spot in the OUA East with Queen’s (14-6) and Ottawa (12-8).

Carleton will close out the regular season with two home games this weekend.

On Friday, February 14 the Algoma Thunderbirds (0-20) will visit the Ravens’ Nest. The Laurentian Voyageurs (4-16) will be Carleton’s opponent on Saturday, February. Tip-off for both games is 6:00PM.
