Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for February 20 - 26, 2017
At the 2017 ACAC Curling Championship, Evan proved his mettle as the freshman Skip of the Thunder Mixed Curling team, taking his four all the way through to the Gold Medal victory. A Bachelor of Management student, Evan is well educated in the sport of Curling and is a great strategic leader with an uncanny ability to hit the critical shots when they are needed most. The ACAC All-Conference selectee led his team to a 12-2 record through the two regional play downs, including a perfect 7-0 run at the Winter event in January. With a straight 5-victory run to Championship Gold in Vermilion, Evan finishes the season with an impressive 17-2 record overall, with a 15 game winning streak dating from the middle of the Fall regional right to the Gold Medal Game.
Van Amsterdam, a freshman from Edmonton, AB is enrolled in the Bachelor of Management program at Concordia University of Edmonton.
Congratulations Evan on your ACAC Gold Medal winning performance!
