Congratulations to all the local curlers who represented their schools and our club very well at the Alberta High School Provincial Curling Championships this past week!
We had 3 local teams make the playoffs on Saturday, and our very own Icemaker - Nic Oake and his team of David Howes, Chase Lozinski, and Owen Pocholok won GOLD in the Boy's Division and are taking the Provincial Banner back to St. Albert Catholic High School! Paul Kane Girls coached by: Laurie Knoll/Lori Olson-Johns: Skip: Brennin Turner, Third: Anna Smith, Second: Seraphina Wong and Lead: Emmarie Brown and Paul Kane Boys, coached by Duncan Knoll/Lori Olson-Johns: Skip: Andrew Nowell, Third: Carson Davis, Second: Tanner Schnirer, and Lead: Ryan Boljkovac each finished fourth in their respective divisions. Many of these fine young curlers are members of St. Albert Junior Curling programs and we are very proud of their performance, both on and off the ice.
