BURLINGTON, Ont. – Kelly Middaugh has been named Investors Group Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Female Athlete of the Week, powered by 2XU, for the period ending March 29, 2018.

Female Athlete of the Week – Kelly Middaugh (Victoria Harbour, Ont.) – 1st Year – Laurier Golden Hawks

The Golden Hawks women’s rink wasn’t able to soar to a national championship, but one of the true bright spots for Laurier at the U SPORTS Curling Championship was Kelly Middaugh, who earns this week’s OUA Female Athlete of the Week nod.

Middaugh was the top player at her position throughout the week as she earned U SPORTS First Team All-Canadian recognition. The Golden Hawks second curled 80 percent for the week and out-curled her opposition by at least five percent in five of Laurier's seven games. Outdoing her own lofty numbers, however, Middaugh saved her best for the championship’s top teams, curling 90 percent against TRU and 85 percent against Alberta, respectively.
