Alumnus John Epping Shoots 100% to Capture Canadian Curling Open

John Epping went undefeated in capturing the Meridian Canadian Open this past weekend in Yorkton, Sask.  The former Trent Varsity curler defeated defending champion Brad Gushue and his rink from St. John's.  Epping, who curls out of Toronto, shot an astounding 100% to take the championship.

It was his 3rd career Grand Slam win.

During his time at Trent, Epping was instrumental in the development of the varsity curling program. In 2005-6, he led the Excalibur to a fourth place finish at the OUA Curling Championships.

A highlight of the tournament was his pair of doubles in the final match.  Check out footage of those shots from Sportsnet.ca
