Burlington, Ont. – Mary Fay has been named IG Wealth Management Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Female Athlete of the Week, powered by Planters, for the period ending February 18, 2019.
Female Athlete of the Week – Mary Fay (Chester, N.S.) – 2nd Year – Queen’s Gaels
Queen’s curling skip Mary Fay was one of the standouts at this weekend’s OUA championships, leading her team to a gold medal after five days of tough competition at the KW Granite Club.
Fay was named a first-team OUA all-star for her efforts at the championship in Waterloo and it’s not hard to see why. The Gaels finished out the round-robin atop Pool B with a 6-1 record, which included wins in four straight draws to start their round robin play. Queen's then took down Carleton 7-2 in the quarterfinal and snuck out a close victory over Lakehead, 4-3, to earn a spot in the gold medal match. Queen's once again held a close match, taking the banner with a 6-4 win over Laurentian.
Fay was able to throw the final stone and seal the Gaels first OUA banner in women's curling since 1994.
