Carly Steer (’14) To Stay Home And Become A Windsor Lancer



Carly Steer (5’7”, PG, Holy Names, 2014) of Windsor, ON has committed to attend the University of Windsor, to play with the Lancers next Fall.

The Windsor, Essex County (WECSSA), 2013 high school league MVP will look to bolster their line up with the athletic Point Guard that felt destiny’s pull in deciding to become a Lancer.

“I grew up around the Lancers and the university, so to finally be a part of it is amazing,” said Steer via University of Windsor press release. “The school brings together a great combination of academics and athletics with an amazing environment on campus.”

On the court, Carly is a strong, athletic Guard that is able to use a variety of ways to score. She is a reliable shooter that can also take the ball to the hole and withstand contact using her sturdy frame.

Off the court, Steer has made good use of her athleticism, finding some success as an accomplished Long Jumper.

Not only will she be able to apply all of her skills with Head Coach Chantal Vallee and the 3-time defending CIS National Champion Lancers by growing as a player, but she is also expecting University of Windsor life to also build on other intangibles by rounding out her development in her other aspects of life.

“I’m looking forward to excelling and developing not only as a player but as a person over the next five years, and help the Lancers continue in their winning ways.”

In the Spring of 2012, Steer’s well-rounded persona was awarded the female OFSAA Character Athlete Award, given by the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association (the governing provincial high school athletics body). It is an award that is handed out to the student who embody OFSAA’s values of leadership, commitment, equity, respect and sportsmanship. She received the award for her work at her local elementary school and for the volunteer work she performed around her community.

Steer plans on studying Kinesiology as her Major.
