GUELPH, Ontario – The provincial curling contingent has seen many champions get crowned at the OUA finale over the last several seasons, leaving the door open for any number of contenders to claim the top prize this time around. The 16-team field remains loaded with talent, with some players returning to their rinks after time off, some looking to build off past banner season experience, and some focused on turning their pre-university pedigree into powerful debuts. While the champions-to-be remain a mystery, one certainty heading into the 2020 OUA Curling Championships is that it will take five days of clutch, capable curling to capture gold at the Guelph Curling Club.
Among those who will be contending for top spot will be the two defending champions – the Carleton Ravens men’s team and the women’s rink from the Queen’s Gaels. At the forefront for the reigning champion Ravens will be Cameron Goodkey, who found unparalleled success in his first season with the team. Despite being a late entry into curling, the Ottawa, Ont. native won both the OUA and U SPORTS gold medal in his first foray into the university game.
