If you’re a curling fan in Saskatchewan you already know that Team Knapp, the 2023 men's provincial championship team, are most worthy representatives of the province. It turns out that the team is also a great representative of the University of Regina. Each member of the team has a connection to the U of R. Skip Kelly Knapp BKin’12 and third Brennen Jones BKin’11 are both graduates of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies. Lead Trevor Knapp BAdmin’12, Kelly’s twin brother, graduated from the Faculty of Business Administration. Alternate Dustin Kidby BSc’12 earned a Faculty of Science degree and coach Brian McCusker is a former coach at the U of R.
After winning the Sasktel Tankard, the team travelled to London, Ontario in early March to compete in the Tim Hortons Brier. The team finished with a record of four wins and four losses, but by all accounts the team will be a contender for years to come. Watch their video above.
