Sir Wildrid Laurier Secondary School alum Marin Scotten wrapped up her inaugural season with the Ryerson Rams earlier this month by capturing Rookie of the Year honours in the OUA (Ontario University Athletics). She was also named to the OUA All-Rookie Team.

Scotten started in all 23 games for the Rams at guard and was ranked second on the team in scoring with a 12.3 points per game average. She also averaged 4.7 rebounds per game and led the team in minutes played with 27.3 minutes per game, thanks in large part to her play on the defensive end of the court as much as her offence.

Her best effort came against Nipissing in January when she scored a career high 26 points.

In two playoff games the 5-foot-11 Scotten averaged 12.5 points per game, 2.5 rebounds and eight assists.

The Rams beat the York Lions 66-61 in their playoff opener behind an 18 point effort by Scotten, including four three-point shots. They ultimately lost to the Carleton Ravens in the second round.

Scotten played basketball and ran track at Sir WIl. She made it to the OFSAA track and field championships in 2016 and 2017. Her best result was a fourth place finish in the Open Girls 1500 Steeplechase in 2016.

Scotten honed her basketball skills as a member of the Ottawa Nationals program in the JUEL League. She earned a spot on the U17 Ontario provincial team in 2016 as an alternate and helped lead them to a national championship.

Before deciding to go to Ryerson, Scotten was recruited by both Queen’s University and the University of Victory. She chose Ryerson because she felt it was the right fit.

“I felt like (Ryerson) was the place where I was going to thrive as a player and a person,” Scotten says.

Given the result, she obviously made the right choice.
