PSHS Curling teams:  

 

PSHS Girls Curling 

 

The Parry Sound girls curling team competed in a Regional playdown event in Kitchener-Waterloo this past weekend.

The team consisted of Nicole Heikoop, Ashlyn Simpson, Arden Milligan and Elizabeth Edington. The girls had a tight first game against Centre Dufferin District High School winning by an inch. In their second game they dominated and controlled the score board against Saugeen Secondary School. Their two wins put them in the A side final against Mayfield Secondary School.

 

 

The Parry Sound Girls dominated the game in the first three ends, and managed to maintain control of the game which lead them to a win.

The girls will be travelling to Woodstock to compete at the Gore Mutual Provincials Feb 12-14.

PSHS Boys Curling

The Parry Sound boys curling teams competed in the Gore Mutual Schoolboys Regional playdown event in Kitchener-Waterloo this past weekend. The team consisting of Nathan Marshall, Tyler Marshall, Nick Mayede and Mackenzie Marshall won the right to go to the Provincials. The boys played two solid games to advance to the A flight Championship against the home team, but unfortunately came up short. The loss placed them in a second chance position in the B flight championship against their fellow team from Parry Sound High School. After an intense, evenly matched game Team Marshall came out ahead and won a spot in the provincial championships. The boys will be travelling to Woodstock to compete at the Gore Mutual Provincials Feb 12-14.

Very Good news! 

A second boys PSHS team headed to the Gore Provincial championship as well. The top team pulled out and since they were in the B event playoff the PSHS boys' team got to fill the vacancy.

They excelled playing in Woodstock and won the Gore shield for placing third at the Championship. 

Congratulations boys!

Pictured at left is the team of 5 that played to get through the regionals.

Bantam Mixed:

Parry Sound Curling Club's Bantam mixed team of Nicole Heikoop - skip, Liam Thompson - vice, Maddie Fisher - second (filling in for Elizabeth Edington) and Adam Walker - lead won the regionals this past weekend in Georgetown, so they are off to provincials from the 2nd to the 5th in London.

The team won all 3 games to win the A event against some very stiff competition.  In their first game they went to 2 extra ends to win.  In the second game they were tied going home with the hammer and after a bunch of perfect peels, Nicole had to draw to the button for the win, which she did.  In the last game they were down 2 after the fourth end break, but picked up 2 in the fifth, stole 1 in the 6th and then 2 in the 7th.  They did not finish the eighth as they ran their opposition out of rocks.  They played extremely well to say the least.
