Women’s curling picks up silver
The men’s and women’s curling teams both won medals at the OUA championships in Windsor Feb. 17-18. After finishing in third place during the regular season with a 4-3 record, the women’s team went on a winning streak in the playoffs that ended when they fell 8-5 to the Laurier Golden Hawks in the final.
The women finished ahead of the Western Mustangs, who were 7-0 during the regular season but couldn’t carry their success into the playoffs.
The men’s team beat the Waterloo Warriors in a tie-breaker match to advance to the semifinal game, but lost to the Mustangs and came home with bronze medals.
Women’s skip Lisa Farnell was named to the OUA First All-Star Team, while men’s second Andrew Inouye made the OUA Second All-Star Team.
Scott Davey, the head coach of both Queen’s teams, was named the OUA coach of the year. He said he was pleased with his teams’ efforts in the championships.
“I think at the Ontario level, we played pretty well,” he said. “Finishing second for the women was probably better than our expectations going in.”
Davey said coaching both teams is a tough task, as many CIS schools have recently expanded to having separate men’s and women’s coaches.
“It’s difficult to focus on both teams at the same time.”
