One of our Parry Sound curlers -
Terri Weeks is doing very well in University curling. See
the news report below about the Brock Badgers and Terri!
The Brock University men's and women's
curling teams competed at the 2016 OUA Curling Championships
hosted by the Guelph Curling Club.
The Brock women's lineup, consisting of
Shelby Bailey, posted
an overall record of 7-2 to take home the OUA silver medal. The
women placed first in Pool play with a 6-1 record with wins over
Ryerson (6-2), Lakehead (8-5),
Algoma (13-3), Waterloo (7-6), Laurentian (8-2), Queen's (5-4).
Their lone pool play loss came against the Guelph Gryphons, 5-2.
In the semi-finals, the Badgers rebounded and knocked off the
Gryphons 7-1, to make it a Brock vs Laurier Gold Medal Final for
the second straight year. In the final, Brock led 4-3 after six
ends, but it was the top ranked Golden
Hawks closing out the match with three points for the 6-4

Teams that played in the Club Championship:
It was a very good year for the
women's teams in the Club Championship. Laurie Robinson's team defeated
Julie Truscott's team in the Main Event final to become the 2015 Club
Champions. Congratulations to both women's teams!
the consolation final it was April McNamara (Gill's Wed. night team) who
defeated Ron Marshall in a very close game. April's last run-back
take-out was the game winner. What a fantastic shot!
Both the second and third events were tied after 8 ends - and in a
shoot-out for each, both skips put rocks on the button or very close to
it. How exciting to watch!
Winner of the second event was Cody MacDonald's Thursday night team
defeating Bob Gilman (Scott Somerset's Thursday night team).
The third event was won by Jason Cutler (Al Bourgois' Tuesday night
team) over Bruce Shadd's Monday night team.
Congratulations to all of the competitors and the winners and
runners-up in each event. Well done all!
