On the heels of Team Gushue’s 2017 Brier victory comes another Newfoundland and Labrador curling milestone.
The Memorial University Sea-Hawks team of skip Adam Boland, third Stephen Trickett, second Zach Young, lead Evan Kearley and coach Gary Ryan has won the USports Men’s Curling Canada Championship with a victory over the University of Alberta team.
The Sea-Hawks finished their season on March 22 in Thunder Bay, Ont., with a perfect 17-0 record, after winning the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) Championship last month, with an 8-0 record.
Team Boland followed that with another perfect week, going 9-0 against some of the top university curlers across Canada.
The last time Team Boland lost a match was in the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Curling Championship to Team Gushue, the 2017 Tim Horton’s Brier Champions.
This is the third national championship for a Memorial University varsity team, sharing the honour with the 1970 men’s soccer team and the 2010-11 men’s curling team.
