Sea-Hawks Claim National Championship

Sea-Hawks Claim National Championship

The Memorial University Sea-Hawks team of skip Adam Boland, third Stephen Trickett, second Zach Young, lead Evan Kearley, and coach Gary Ryan won the USports Men's Curling Championship with an 8-4 victory over the University of Alberta. 

The Sea-Hawks finish the season 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 NL 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.
