Prairie Mountain High School Hosts Provincial Curling Championship
by Patti Hacault, Staff Reporter
The atmosphere was intense and the competition challenging as teams from 31 schools, encompassing the province of Manitoba, gathered to compete in Canada’s “game of chess”.
Representing the various zones throughout Manitoba, high school curling teams were in Somerset and Swan Lake from February 21st to 23rd where approximately 61 games were played across the board.
The communities of Somerset and Swan Lake joined forces to share the work of hosting the 2019 Provincial Championship. Athletes had an opportunity to come together and share in a sport, meet new people and share their experiences.
Colin Hodgson, lead for Team Carruthers, Manitoba Provincial Curling Champs, was the guest speaker at their banquet on Thursday evening.
In the Girls Division the Wild Card went to the Zone 4 Dauphin Clippers who prevailed over the Zone 8 Garden Valley Zodiacs. The Zone 3 Westwood Warriors rink was the Boys Wild Card representative.
Throughout the tournament the majority of the game scores were very close with several extra ends.
In the final game of the Girls Division, the Zone 13 Edward Schreyer Barons and the Zone 6 Prairie Mountain High School Predators players went into an extra end, tallying a score of 9 – 6. Both rinks curled a total of six games throughout the three days.
