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 […]

But if there were any […]

Rams rebound remarkably on Day 3 of OUAs

The Ryerson Rams curling teams each had to bounce back after a winless second day at the OUA Championships, and did so brilliantly on Saturday. Both teams played twice on the third day of the round–robin, and each team emerged with two important wins.

Ryerson curlers come up light on Day 1 of OUAs

 “More wins than last season” has been the commonly-stated goal of both Ryerson Rams curling teams when discussing this year’s Ontario University Athletics (OUA) championship. After the first day of competition, however, it’s clear that this goal could be more of a challenge than expected. The women’s team won big and lost big to start the tournament at 1-1, while […]
