The Humber women’s curling team won the OCAA provincial championship for the fourth time, defeating the Niagara Knights 8-6 in a closely contested match.

Meaghan Mallett, a student in Humber North Campus’ social science program, has proven herself to be a rising star in the world of curling.

The championship game was evenly matched throughout, and Mallett’s impressive shots helped secure the victory.

She was named MVP by the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and Athlete of the Week by the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA).

Mallett has been turning heads with her exceptional skills on the sheet and her latest accolades are a testament to her hard work and dedication.

Originally from Waterloo, Ont., she has been an integral part of the Humber Hawks women’s curling team’s success.

Her leadership and determination have won the team numerous games and tournaments, including the 2022 Women’s Curling Championship.

“Getting named Humber Athlete of the Week is always a really special achievement,” Mallett said. “Our school has a very strong depth of athleticism across many sports so it is very special to be named at the top.”

She put on a clinic in the championship game, leading her team to victory.

She made several crucial plays and took many successful shots, which earned her the MVP award by the OCAA.

“This is my second time winning the award, and it feels just as special this time around,” she said.

Mallett credits her success to her teammates and coaches for their support and guidance.

“My teammates inspire me every time we step on the ice, whether it be for practice or in a game,” she said. “We constantly remind each other that we put everything we have into our sport for each other.”
