Ravens pride was evident everywhere during Carleton University’s Throwback weekend from Oct. 16 to 19, with 34 events attracting thousands of faculty, staff, students, alumni and donors to campus.

From a chemistry magic show, a panel on mystery novels and networking events to a Ravens Hall of Fame gala, exciting sports action and reunion dinners, the community packed Carleton venues over four days.

Carleton athletes shone in competition, winning a number of games in football, basketball, water polo and hockey.

“Our campus was filled with an incredible energy as alumni flooded back on campus to reconnect with Carleton and one another,’’ said Mark Savenkoff, director of Alumni and Donor Relations.

“It was inspiring to speak with graduates about their student experience while they were here, and I am already looking forward to next year’s third annual event.”

The weekend began with a convincing 9-4 win for the Ravens men’s ice hockey team, which defeated the Ridgebacks from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

On Saturday, the Ravens men’s football team was victorious at Keith Harris Stadium, beating the University of Windsor Lancers 21-18.

The women’s hockey team defeated the Ottawa Gee-Gees in their season opener with a final score of 4-2 and the Ravens men’s water polo team took part in the University of Toronto Invitational where they won three of their four games.

The weekend ended with the men’s basketball team winning the 25th annual House-Laughton tournament with a 101-69 victory over the Laval Rouge et Or.

TSN sportscaster James Duthie, a graduate of Carleton’s journalism program, was on hand for a number of the sporting events over the weekend.
