Burlington, Ont. – Kenna Bartlett has been named Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Female Athlete of the Week for the period ending March 15, 2020.
Female Athlete of the Week – Kenna Bartlett, Queen’s Gaels, Curling
For a second straight season, the Queen’s Gaels women’s rink found themselves curling for a bronze medal on the national stage, and thanks in large part to the consistent contributions of lead Kenna Bartlett, the Tricolour stepped onto the podium this season.
Bartlett helped bring the Gaels to the U SPORTS/Curling Canada podium as the most effective lead in the tournament. The first team all-Canadian was an integral ingredient for the Gaels throughout the week, including in their journey through the round robin, which saw them finish 5-2 and in third place heading into the semifinals, and in their clutch 7-5 win with a bronze medal on the line, upending the McMaster Marauders in an OUA championship rematch.
For the tournament, the junior from Oshawa, Ont. curled at an 80% clip – featuring three matches above 85% during the round robin schedule and a 79% success rate in the medal match – marking the highest success rate for the bronze-winning bunch.
