CBC: Student wins curling juniors

January 27, 2014 — 

University of Manitoba student and curler Braden Calvert and his team (third Kyle Kurz, second Lucas Van Den Bosch, lead Brendan Wilson and coach Tom Clasper) beat New Brunswick’s Rene Comeau 7-5 on Jan. 26 in the men’s gold-medal game at the 2014 Canadian Junior Curling Championships.

“It’s a dream come true, really,” Calvert told the CBC. “The guys just played really well all week, and we managed to do it. Unbelievable. I’m in shock right now.”

The team will join women’s champ Kelsey Rocque of Alberta at the 2014 World Junior Curling Championships, beginning Feb. 26 in Flims, Switzerland.
