Leduc Comp to Host Provincial Championships
From Thursday, March 6th to Saturday, March 8th the best high school curlers in Alberta will be competing in the Alberta Schools Athletic Association’s (ASAA) Championships. Curling is the one team sport that the ASAA does not split into divisions based on school size. Schools with less than 100 students will compete against schools with populations of over 2,000.
Six rural zones will join the Edmonton and Calgary Zones for the three days of curling at the Leduc Curling Club’s rinks in the LRC. After the first draw on Thursday curlers will attend a banquet, which will be held at the Best Western Denham Inn.
Early the next morning curlers will return to the ice at 8am on Friday with the final draw scheduled for 6:15pm. A final round-robin game will begin at 8am Saturday with playoffs beginning right after the completion of the round-robin round. Semifinals and finals will depend on the number of tie breakers that maybe required.
If no tie breakers are needed then semis are scheduled for 10:45am and finals at 1:30pm. If tie breakers are required the times will be 1:30pm for semis and 4:15pm for the finals. The three divisions are boys, girls, and mixed. Last year the smaller schools dominated the playoffs with Dr. Folkins from Chauvin taking the mixed title, Georges P. Vanier of Donnelly winning the boys’ championship, and Paul Rowe from Manning capturing the girls.
The first team to register is the J.T. Foster School of Nanton in the girls division. Other teams will soon join them as the various zones host their zone championships this weekend.
