Laurentian Athletics is proud to announce that Voyageurs curler, Kira Brunton, (Sudbury, ON) has been named the Perkins Athlete of the Week.
Brunton, a 2nd year Sport Psychology student, had an outstanding week for the Voyageurs at the Curling Canada/U SPORTS Championships in Fredericton, NB. Brunton skipped her squad to a 5-2 round robin record to qualify for the playoffs.
In the semi-final, Brunton helped the Voyageurs down the top-seeded Dalhousie Tigers 8-2 thanks in part to 4 stolen ends. In the Championship game against the Brock Badgers, Brunton got the women off to a flying start with three in the first end. After a back and forth game, Brunton was left with a draw to the button in the tenth end to give the Voyageurs the win and their second banner in three years.
With the close of the Championship, the season has officially come to an end for Brunton and her teammates.
