Valley curlers make the provincial scene

Two Cowichan Valley curlers have skipped their Victoria rinks to provincial playdowns in recent weeks.

Duncan’s Nolan Reid skipped his Victoria based rink to a bronze medal at the Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships in Chilliwack, ending on Dec. 31.

The Reid rink went 4-3 in round-robin play before being eliminated from the playoffs by the eventual winners, the de Jong rink also out of Victoria.

Cobble Hill skip Sarah Wark led her Victoria-based foursome at the Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship in Prince George last week. The rink, coached by Mill Bay’s Roselyn Craig, finished up in eighth place with a 4-5 record.
