EDMONTON – Only teammate Ashton Simard had a better curling percentage among all players who met the minimum playing time standard at the CCAA national championship than Kurjata.
Hitting at a 77 per cent accuracy rate in helping the Griffins finish atop the round-robin standings at 6-1, Kurjata was a big reason why MacEwan posted the best finish in program history last Tuesday – a CCAA silver medal.
At last Tuesday night’s CCAA banquet, she was named the tournament’s all-star second.
A big honourable mention for the third star goes to the rink’s third, Erin Wells, who also won a CCAA all-star award at the third position after curling at 73 per cent during the round-robin – top five among all curlers at the bonspiel. It’s the second-straight season that Wells has been named a CCAA all-star.
