2010 Team Achievement Award Recipients
The 1978-79 season would be prove to be another banner year for the Lancer Curling program as both the Lancer Men and Women would go on to capture the OUAA and OWIAA Provincial Championships.
That year, both the men’s and women’s west sectionals would be contested in London at Thompson Arena in January of 1979. The Lancer men went undefeated going 5-0 to advance to the OUAA finals.
At the OUAA final, the Lancers finished round robin play with a 4-1 record and tied atop the standings with Waterloo. That would force a playoff game with the Warriors to decide the title.
In the deciding game, the Lancers trailed 8-7 coming home before Windsor skip Peter Dekoning led his team, drawing the four foot area for two in the 10th end for the win and Windsor’s third straight OUAA men’s title.
Members of the men’s team include Skip Peter DeKoning (fourth from left), Lead Greg Barlow (right), 2nd Duncan Stauth (second from left) and 3rd Alec Pinchin (left) with Coach Doug Bakes.
