Mark Tari and the Rams were at home, but nothing made them feel that way. Despite their 10-5 victory over the McMaster Marauders, they knew that the opposing team had more fans cheering at the Bond Park baseball game. It was an October day, ideal for baseball. The sun was shining, but it wasn’t enough to bring Ryerson students out […]

I remember a pre-season conversation in late August while I was working as a summer student with the Rams. It was with associate coach of the Ryerson men’s soccer team, Filip Prostran. I asked Fil, as he is known by many, about how his team looked ahead of the season. Fil shook his head and simply said, “not good.” There […]
Michael Carlucci is 20 years old. Carlucci was a soccer goalie. He was because he no longer is – or better yet, he can’t be. A concussion cut his playing days short and it’s been a year since Carlucci could play in net. Concussions are considered an epidemic in football. Yet in soccer, they’re overlooked, an afterthought. It’s a story […]

Emily Wrigglesworth has had 10 concussions and suffered depression “after all of them.” And it was noticeably worse after her ninth, in September 2012. The Ryerson journalism student couldn’t even get out of bed without getting headaches. “I have never been so frustrated in my life,” Wrigglesworth said. On young people, the effects of a concussion often extents beyond just physical pain. According […]
Ryerson’s intramural leagues are re-opening, and their co-ordinator wants students to know they don’t have to be varsity athletes to compete. “The purpose of intramurals is for all of Ryerson to participate in sports, meet others and enjoy being active,” said Randy Pipher, Ryerson’s intramural and camps co-ordinator.
