Finlandia Curling Club a medal winner

HANCOCK - February 8, 2011

Finnish curler and politician Markku Uusipaavalniemi (pictured above) would be proud. Finlandia has formed a Curling Club.

Yes. The Finlandia Curling Club has officially been recognized, and within its first six days the roar of curling rocks has already made us proud.
Finlandia Curling entered the Midwest College Curling Championships in January and managed to take home a bronze medal!

It was a rough start in the playdown (tournament) as Finlandia lost its first match against MTU, 0-12. Finlandia scored its first few points in the next match to break the ice. Then, they proceeded to improve throughout the playdown and eventually managed to beat the odds when it counted most.
The bronze medal match came down to a rematch between Finlandia and MTU. This time, Finlandia was ready with rock and brooms in hand to sweep their way to a 9-3 victory.

Yes, congratulations go out to all our outstanding curlers in the Championship. Congratulations to: Dave Hendrickson – Skip, Matt Erickson, Nate Kennaday, India Slayback, Justin Cayce, Jake Weston, and George Kallas. (Nicole Pollack of Carroll University also stepped in as a sub for a game.)
Thank you, also, to all those who came to watch a few sheets!

The Finlandia Curling Club is open to any students who wish to participate. We welcome beginners as much as advanced curlers. Come, learn to curl…you‘ll love it!

The next Curling Club meeting is Tuesday, February 8, 8:00 p.m., in the Finlandia Hall cafeteria.
The next challenge is the National Curling Championships, March 11 to 13, in Chicago.
