Red Deer College Curling Head Coach Brad Hamilton thought that the level of play took another step up on the final day.

"I think it was three good days at the Fall Regional. The curling probably got better as we progressed," said Hamilton. "There are some tired student-athletes out there today but it was pretty good curling overall."

Throughout the weekend, there were many great individual and team performances which sets the stage for an exciting Winter Regional. NAIT will host the event Jan. 27 – 29, 2017.
