The RDC Curling teams wrapped up the 2017 – 18 season at the CCAA Curling National Championships this past week.

Despite the RDC Queens finishing 3-4 and the Kings going 1-6 at nationals, there were several aspects of the season to be celebrated. The Queens won Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) gold and the RDC Kings earned silver.

Two talented student athletes were recognized at the conference level for their achievements. Sara McMann was chosen as the ACAC Female Curler of the Year and Andrew Jones was named to the ACAC Men’s Curling All-Conference team.   

All RDC teams have now completed the 2017 - 18 season and they will look forward to competing next year in the world class Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/ Centre des Jeux du Canada Gary W. Harris. 

 

Here are a few upcoming events:

RDC Athletics Awards Night | April 10 | 6:30 p.m. | Arts Centre

The successes of another RDC Athletics season will be celebrated. 

 

15th Annual Kings & Queens Scholarship Breakfast | April 11 | 7:30 a.m. | Harvest Centre
