Lord Tweedsmuir to represent zones at high school curling provincials
For the first time in 15 years, Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary will represent the Lower Fraser Valley in Kamloops at the B.C. High School Curling Championships. The Panthers boys curling team will be headed to Kamloops Feb. 28 to March 2 for the 2013 event.
Lord Tweedsmuir last qualified for the provincial high school curling championships in 1996/97.
The Panthers beat five other schools in their zone over the weekend at Tsawwassen’s Tunnel Town Curling Club, besting two from South Delta Secondary (with scores of 10:3 and 7:4 respectively), McMath Secondary in Richmond (8:3), Seaquam Secondary (13:1) and Delta Secondary School (13:2).
They set a record and qualified for the provincials in the process, thanks to their 5:0 showing after round robin play.
Representing the team were Tyler and Jordan Tardi, and Rhett and Brad Hildenbrandt, and coach Paul Tardi. Teammate Liam Purgavie was unable to play, but will join the team in Kamloops at the provincials.
It was the first time the foursome has played together in two years. In 2011, they debuted at the International Children’s Winter Games in Kelowna.
