U SPORTS curling champions Krysta Burns from the Laurentian Voyageurs and Adam Boland of the Memorial Sea-Hawks are the final ArcelorMittal Dofasco U SPORTS female and male athletes of the week for the 2016-17 season, for the period ending March 26, 2017.
Boland, a fifth-year business administration major from Gander, N.L., went 9-0 en route to Memorial’s second U SPORTS men’s curling championship in program annals, after winning their inaugural title in 2011. Following a first-place finish in the round robin, the veteran skip narrowly edged Regina 8-7 in the semis, then beat Alberta 8-4 in the final.
Curling skips Wesley Forget from the Queen’s Gaels and Thomas Scoffin of the Alberta Golden Bears, as well as Laval Rouge et Or football player Jean-Simon Roy were the other male nominees.
