Mor­rin Sr. High girls and Delia Sr. High boys are ad­vanc­ing to Provin­cials af­ter win­ning ev­ery game played at South Cen­tral Zones. .

On Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 27, Drumheller Curl­ing Club was filled with over 115 en­thu­si­as­tic and de­ter­mined curlers and coaches there to com­pete for the South Cen­tral Zone Curl­ing Cham­pi­onships.

Al­berta Schools’ Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion (ASAA) four time Cham­pi­ons, Mor­rin Sr. High School girls rink, won their divi­sion ti­tle, af­ter curl­ing against Oyen’s South Cen­tral High School 11-0. South Cen­tral con­ceded the game, af­ter four ends, and de­cided not to at­tend the Provin­cials. (Two rinks from the girls divi­sion were al­lowed to ad­vance to Provin­cials) That de­ci­sion gave the bronze medal rink from Sun­dre Sr. High School the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend.

Delia Sr. High School boys rink won their divi­sion ti­tle, 10-1, against Cal­gary’s Holy Trin­ity from Cal­gary. “This is the first time, in quite a few years, that Delia will be rep- re­sent­ing the zone, so that’s pretty cool.” said co­or­di­na­tor Don Yavis, Prin­ci­pal at Mor­rin School.

The Mixed curl­ing divi­sion win­ner was Cross­field’s W.G. Mur­doch High School rink against the Carstairs/Olds team.

Yavis also said, “Great week­end, with 23 rinks, 8 Girls, 8 Boys and 7 Mixed, com­pet­ing for their zone divi­sion ti­tle. Our area did very well. The win­ners will be go­ing to Provin­cials start­ing next Thurs­day, March 3. Mor­rin girls will be de­fend­ing their ti­tle.”

The teams will head to Ponoka and prac­tice on Thurs­day, play­ing two games Fri­day and the play­offs will be Satur­day. The ASAA Pro­vin­cial Cham­pi­onships are be­ing held at the Ponoka Curl­ing Club.

This is the first time, in quite a few years, that Delia will

be rep­re­sent­ing the zone, so that’s

pretty cool.”
