Carleton athlete shines on the field and in the pages of Chatelaine

Student athletes must be good jugglers. Coaches want only your best, as do professors — to keep all the balls in the air, and to stay on top of these competing demands, you need perseverance and balance. Of course, a little skill doesn’t hurt either.

Stacey Siopis, a defensive player on Carleton University’s varsity women’s soccer team, has juggled her responsibilities with award-winning finesse. This year she was named Carleton’s 2003 Chatelaine Woman of Influence—an award which recognizes her and female student athletes from each of the 18-member Ontario University Athletics (OUA) schools for their contributions to their school, team and teammates.

“There are 190 women who play sports at Carleton, and they are all an inspiration to me,” says Siopis, who received the award at a luncheon in Toronto on November 20. “Everyone works extremely hard. It’s been my privilege to play for such a fine program and enjoy such success.”

Siopis was Carleton’s obvious nominee for the Chatelaine award. She’s quarterbacked the Ravens’ powerful defense for three seasons, was named Carleton’s most valuable women’s soccer player in 2001, and has twice received the Raven Fund scholarship for her academic and athletic prowess. This year, she was also named to the OUA all-star team for the third time.

“There is no doubt that Stacey is a phenomenal athlete,” says Gail Blake, Assistant Director (Sport). “But she’s also been a great leader and an excellent student. It’s nice to finally see her recognized for her accomplishments off the field.”
