The athletes took the championship in an undefeated weekend with a 10-5 win in the final over the Dalhousie Tigers in Truro, N.S., from Feb. 11-12.

The Sea-Hawks, skipped by Adam Boland and coached by Gary Ryan, scored five in the the third end of the championship game and held off a number of charges by Robert Mayhew and his Tigers rink the rest of the way.

Mr. Boland’s Memorial teammates include Stephen Trickett, Zach Young and Evan Kearley.
