The second day of the four day Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Curling National Championships is in the books and the RDC Queens split their games on Sunday to sit with an even record. The Red Deer College Kings were involved in a pair of close games but are still looking to find their groove in Leduc. There has been an adjustment period playing on arena ice.

The RDC Queens started Sunday morning on a winning note against the Holland Hurricanes. The Hurricanes led 3-1 after five ends but the Queens scored 2 in the sixth, 3 in the eighth and 2 in the tenth to earn an 8-5 victory. At 5:00 p.m., the RDC Queens dropped a 7-3 decision to the Fanshawe Falcons to complete the two days with an even 2-2 record. 

At 9:00 a.m., the NAIT Ooks shaded the RDC Kings 7-5 and then the University of Alberta Augustana Vikings edged the Kings 11-9 in the evening.

Monday at 1:00 p.m., the Red Deer College Queens will compete against the NAIT Ooks (3-1) and the RDC Kings will play the Douglas Royals (4-0).
