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.
