Leduc Comp’s Mixed Team Earns Their Way!


    As hosts of the 2014 Alberta Schools Athletic Association’s (ASAA) provincial curling championships, Leduc Comp, was guaranteed spots in the championships. Leduc’s mixed curling team was not interested in getting a pass when they competed in the Edmonton Zone playoffs held in February.
    In their first zone playoff game held on Wednesday, February 5th, they defeated McNally 8 to 2 and advanced to the A Event semifinal. On Monday, February 10th they continued their dominance knocking off Fort Saskatchewan’s John Paul II 9 to 3 putting them into the finals against neighboring Beaumont. 
    The A Event final was held on Tuesday, February 18th and the Tigers defeated the Bandits 5 to 2. The team had to wait until Wednesday, February 26th to see who would play them in the A-B final.
    Beaumont’s Bandits had to defeat both John Paul II and Lillian Osborne to gain the right for a rematch against Leduc in the A-B Final. Once again the Tigers were able to overcome Beaumont. The final result was by a near identical score of 5 to 1. Since Leduc was already guaranteed a spot at the provincial championships Beaumont was awarded the Edmonton Zone spot and will also compete at the provincials this weekend.

    Only three teams competed in the Edmonton Zone’s girls draw and Harry Ainlay was able to defeat both Leduc and Archbishop O’Leary to advance along with Leduc to the ASAA Championships. In boys action W.P. Wagner won the zone title with the Leduc boys falling, in a close match, against St. Francis and then again to Queen Elizabeth. Both teams have their tickets to the championships.
