Craig rink finishes fourth in Canada

The Kerry Park Curling Club’s Wes Craig rink finished fourth at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship in North Bay, Ontario last week.

The foursome included Craig, his son Miles, Duncan’s Sarah Wark and Victoria’s Michelle Allen, and was coached by Roz Craig, a former Canadian senior women’s champion.

The Craig rink went 3-3 in pool play. Advancing to the championship round, they again split their results, beating Nova Scotia and Ontario, and losing to Northern Ontario and Saskatchewan.

A rematch against Saskatchewan in the semifinals led to a 7-4 loss for Craig’s rink, and in the bronze-medal game, Ontario prevailed 9-2. The rink won the right to represent B.C. at nationals by winning the 2014 BC Mixed Curling Championship at the Duncan Curling Club last March.
