CARP – COVID-19 may have ended Huntley Curling Club’s competitive U15 girls’ team’s season early, but not before the young squad put the stamp of success on the season.
“This upcoming weekend (March 28) would have marked one of our last competitions of the year at the U15 Challenge Cup in Belleville,” the team released in a statement. “Unfortunately, our season had to end early due to the ongoing health crisis, but Team LIKE recognizes the health and safety of everyone is the main priority. We are so proud of the progress we made this season, both as individual curlers, as well as a team.”
The team is made up of Carp’s Erika Wainright, 12, and Lauren Norman, 11, and Kanata’s Katrina Frlan, 12, Samantha Wall, 12, and Isabella McLean, 12.
Team LIKE’s season which included two wins and several playoff appearances, competed in the following events:
- U18 Cashspiel at the RC Navy Curling Club
- U15 Cash on the Wall Bonspiel at the Pembroke Curling Centre (Winners)
- U15 Ladies Curling Association (LCA) at the RA Riverside Curling Club (Winners)
- U15 Meteor Junior Slam at the Russell Curling Club (Playoffs)
- U18 Provincial Qualifiers at the Brockville Country Club (B-Side Quarter Finals)
- U18 Galaxy Junior Slam at the Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club (Playoffs)
“We are so grateful for the support of our families, coaches and sponsors for making this season possible,” Team LIKE said. “We would also like to thank our home club, Huntley Curling Club and the ice makers for all their support throughout the season.”
The team hopes everyone continues to support small business during this challenging time.
“Lastly, the COVID-19 virus is affecting all of us,” Team LIKE said. “Small businesses are having a difficult time keeping the doors open and keeping people employed. We encourage everyone to support local businesses whenever and wherever you can. We especially want to highlight our sponsors who supported us, now it’s time for them to get some support back.”
