Laurier sweeps gold in curling

The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s and women’s curling teams have both won gold and OUA Championship banners.
It’s the second time in Laurier’s history there has been a curling sweep.

The men won their seventh provincial title with a 4-3 win over Western at the Guelph Curling Club on Monday.

The women’s team won their eighth OUA banner, and second consecutive, after a 5-3 win over Brock.

“It feels really good,” commented skip Carly Howard, who became the second Laurier skip to guide her team to back-to-back provincial titles.

“It’s a great feeling,” added skip Aaron Squires, who missed last year’s finals due to illness when Laurier won silver. “It was unfortunate last year what happened, not having a chance to play the finals. This year to come out on top is a great feeling for everybody.”

As it turns out, Laurier is hosting the CIS Championships this year. They run March 18-21 at the K-W Granite Club.
