Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for February 20 - 26, 2017
Veronica is the young and talented Skip of the Thunder Women’s Curling team. With a very strong team behind her, the hardworking, calm and composed Skip guided her team to a combined 8-2 record in the regional play downs, sending the Thunder into the Championship weekend in 1st place. Although Veronica and her team stumbled in the 1-2 page game, they ‘thundered’ back with two convincing wins in the semi-final and Gold Medal games. With the 2017 Gold Medal in their possession, Veronica and her teammates are ready to continue their winning ways at the CCAA National Championships in Camrose in late March.
Maschmeyer is a 1st year Bachelor of Arts student who hails froms Buderheim, AB.
Congratulations Veronica on being the first Gold Medal winning Skip in Women’s Curling in Thunder Athletics history and good luck in Camrose!
