RED DEER- The Red Deer College Curling teams are getting set for the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Fall Regionals and coach Brad Hamilton has his sights on another successful season.
"The goal is to make it to the ACAC Curling Championships and ideally make it to nationals from there," said Hamilton. "We’ve had that history the past few years and the returnees are used to that and it's an expectation now."
Last season, the RDC Queens captured gold and the Kings earned bronze at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Curling National Championships.
Competing for the Queens this season are returning student-athletes Sara McMann (skip), Brett Day (third) and Katie Primrose (lead). Shelby Primrose (second) and Kalynna Watson (spare) are joining the women’s team.
Austin Kelts-Larsen (skip), Andrew Jones (second), Shayne Copeland (lead) and Jordan Smith (spare) are back and will be competing for the Kings.
Carter Snethun (third) is a new addition to the men’s squad.
Ashlyn Wozny (skip), David Austin (third) and Chloe Logelin (second) are returning and will comprise the RDC Mixed Curling team along with first-year Jayden Mitchell (lead).
The Red Deer College Curling teams will compete at the ACAC Curling Fall Regionals, November 24 – 26, at the St. Paul Curling Club.
Portage College will host the event.
