Mor­rin School com­pletes three-peat at provin­cials

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Patrick Ko­lafa

The Mor­rin School Se­nior Girls Curl­ing team have proved their dom­i­nance again at the pro­vin­cial level win­ning the ti­tle and com­plet­ing the three-peat.

The team is made up of skip Shelby Prim­rose, third Tay­lor Olm­stead, sec­ond Kayla Adams, lead Amanda Holowath and coached by Betty Prim­rose, com­peted in the tour­na­ment in Leth­bridge on March 2-4 and came home with their third cham­pi­onships in as many years.

“It went ex­cel­lent,” said coach Betty Prim­rose.

The Mor­rin team dom­i­nated in the round robin, and then they crossed over, they faced a tough match in the semi­fi­nal.

“In the eighth end Shelby drew to the four foot to win,” said Prim­rose. “She clinched the win.”

The fi­nal wasn’t close as they dom­i­nated Leth­bridge for the gold medal.

“There has not been a streak this long, we looked on the plaques when we were down there,” said coach Prim­rose. “Some schools have won twice, but not back-to-back, we kind of set a record.”

That is it for the sea­son for the team, aside from some recre­ational bon­spiels. For the ones that grad­u­ate Prim­rose ex­pects they may play at the post-sec­ondary level.

As for Prim­rose, her youngest daugh­ter will be grad­u­at­ing, so she is re­tir­ing from coach­ing.

De­spite this, she says they have a good core that can keep the streak alive.

“They just have to put the hard work in. We start in Novem­ber and were play­ing in U18 bon­spiels to bring our level of play up so when you go into your own com­pe­ti­tion you have the men­tal set ready,” said Prim­rose.
