To say that the Ryerson Rams women’s curling teams finished strong at the OUA Curling Championship would be a gross understatement. After starting the round robin 1-3, the women won their final three games to finish 4-3 and qualify for the playoffs as the fourth seed in Pool A. Combined with the men winning their final four round robin games […]

Brock Rocked: Rams upset Badgers in OUA quarterfinals

  The Ryerson Rams’ women’s curling team already had enough of an argument to be deemed a “Cinderella story”. After falling to 1-3 to start the round robin at the 2017 OUA Curling Championship, the Rams won their final three games and managed to sneak into the fourth and final playoff spot in their pool. But if there were any […]
