Janet Podleski excelled in her three years as a varsity basketball player, but it was as a soccer Raven (awarded varsity status in 1987) that she garnered national recognition. She was the first woman from Carleton chosen for the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union‘s All-Canadian team (1987/88). In the same year, she led the team and the Ontario Women’s Intercollegiate Athletic Association, in scoring with eight goals. Janet also led the team to a top-10 national ranking and fifth-place finish provincially and was the first Carleton woman to be named an All-Star at both national (CIAU) and provincial (OWIAA) levels, in the same year. She ranked in the top five for goals scored in the OWIAA. Individual honours include OWIAA All-Star, CIAU All-Canadian, OWIAA Championship Tournament All-Star, co-winner of the Most Valuable Player for the league and Carleton’s three- bar plaque. In addition to her outstanding leadership and play for Carleton women’s soccer, Janet was named at the age of 19 to the provincial team. Janet now keeps in shape on the golf course.
