After a nearly decade long break your Courtice Secondary curlers returned to the ice this season. C.S.S. fielded 3 teams (2 girls and 1 boys). The return was triumphant. The teams all finished in the top 3 of their divisions for the regular season and got off to winning starts in the playoffs. In the LOSSA finals yesterday all three teams were playing for medals.
The boys team of M. Smith, S. Segriff, T. Sweeting, M. Holdbrook and A. Rickman came up short in their medal game losing to Wilson. A silver medal in their first season is a great result.
The two girl’s teams faced each other in the LOSSA semi-finals. The team of M. Snowden, K. Meredith, C. Hyland, A. Brown and N. Burry were a rock short in the bronze medal game. The other team won their gold medal final over Uxbridge and will represent LOSSA at OFSAA.
Congratulations to A. Edgar, M. Perrault, C. Hoefs and M. Nakamura on their gold medal victory.
Good luck at OFSAA ladies.
