Coyle turns brooms to silver

Ginger Coyle, the fourth-year skip who led her Marauder rink to a silver medal at Ontario University Athletics Curling Championships was named the McMaster Female Athlete of the Week.

McMaster compiled a 5-1 record in pool play, and defeated the rink from Brock 8-2 to advance to the semi-finals of the spiel at Wilfrid Laurier University on Feb. 14-18.

The Marauders then enjoyed a 6-3 win over the Guelph Gryphons – who had topped Pool A – before falling to the Western Mustangs in the final. Their second-placed finish is enough to qualify the Marauders for the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships, to be hosted by Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C. from March 20-24.
