Lord Tweedsmuir curls to silver at provincials
Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary has won silver at the provincial high school curling championships in Parksville over the weekend.
For the second year in a row, the Panthers have curled their way to a spot on the podium. Last year, the same team – comprised of Tyler Tardi, Jordan Tardi, Rhett Hildenbrandt, Liam Purgavie, Brad Hildenbrandt and coach Paul Tardi – won third place, ending a 17-year drought for Lord Tweedsmuir.
There was a tie-breaker for the number two and three spot at the finals, and the Cloverdale team had to play an extra game to secure second place at the 2014 Rio Tinto Alcan B.C. High School Curling Championships.
Coquitlam's Centennial Secondary defended their title, winning gold again, with Smithers picking up third place in boys curling action.
On the girls side, North Delta's Seaquam Secondary also picked up its second consecutive provincial gold for the girls; followed by Chilliwack and Mount Elizabeth.
