BURLINGTON, Ont. – John Willsey has been named Investors Group Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Male Athlete of the Week, powered by 2XU, for the period ending March 29, 2018.
Male Athlete of the Week – John Willsey (Orillia, Ont.) – 3rd Year – Waterloo Warriors
The Waterloo Warriors men’s curling rink made waves at the U SPORTS Curling Championship and this week’s OUA Male Athlete of the Week – John Willsey – played a significant part in the team’s fourth place finish on the national stage.
As a whole, the Warriors skip led the rink to five wins at the championship event, including a strong victory over eventual gold medalist Alberta, before ultimately bowing out in the bronze medal game at the hands of UNB. On a personal note, the third year curled his way to a Second Team All-Canadian nod after curling 80 percent for the championship.
