The Roland Michener Award is presented after each installment of the Canada Games to an outstanding male and female athlete who exemplify leadership, cooperation and excellence on and off the field of play during the Games.
As the skip, MacIsaac led Team Nova Scotia to a gold medal in men’s curling at the 2023 Canada Winter Games. Hailing from Greenfield, he now turns his attention to competing at the U20 level in his home province and at the national level. He hopes to represent Canada before playing professionally, and one day, make it to the Olympics.
“My favourite memory from the Games has to be winning the gold medal for my province,” MacIsaac said. “That has been our goal since day one when we put this team together. It means the world to me. Not only to accomplish one of my biggest goals that I’ve had since I was a kid, but to get this award as well, words can’t explain what this means to me.”
