Former Strathmore High School Spartan Aiden Anderson is fresh off competing at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association curling national championship in Camrose.
Anderson curls with the University of Alberta Augustana Vikings, which hosted the nationals. They won their way in after they knocked off the NAIT Ooks to capture the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference title back in February.
Unfortunately for the Vikings, they were involved in a three-team logjam for the final playoff spot. The tiebreaker didn’t kick in their favour, as they were left on the outside looking in, finishing fifth.
The Vikings downed the Ooks 14-4, lost to the Red Deer College 7-4, downed Olds College Broncos 7-4, edged the Lakeland College Rustlers 7-3, were doubled up by the Humber College Hawks 6-3, were clipped 9-6 by Fanshawe Falcons and slipped up 10-5 to Niagara College Nights.
