(Cornwall) – The Almonte and District High School (ADHS) boys’ squad has gained a berth at the 2016 Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) Curling Championship.

The foursome of Skip Derek Bowden, Third Allyn Wark, Second Jack McBride and Lead Karlan Schenher defeated Perth and District Collegiate Institute 6-4 in the final Tuesday at the 2016 Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (EOSSAA) Curling Championships, held at the Cornwall Curling Centre.

Convener Ian Wilson said ADHS played with precision.

“They just didn’t miss a shot,” said Wilson of the squad’s win. “They were making doubles and ticks and they were incredible at sweeping.”

The foursome, friends who play competitively at the Almonte Curling Club, will now head to OFSAA March 7-10 in North Bay.

The team will be joined at the competition by the girls’ squad from Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute, who beat their PDCI counterparts 8-4 in their final. The team of Lead Tamra Lavoie, Second Caitlin Allen, Third Meghan Courtemanche and Skip Cassie Allen went undefeated throughout the tournament.

Glengarry District High School won the mixed event, but finished their season as there is no OFSAA event for mixed play. The team is comprised of Skip Sheldon Horton, Third Brittany MacLeod-Mayes, Second Matthew Houlzet and Lead Hayley Cholette.

The EOSSAA championship, which took place Monday and Tuesday, was hosted by Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School and attracted 24 teams from across the region.
