Kelowna team wins B.C. blind curling title

Dean Martell's Kelowna rink earns trip to nationals next year

Dean Martell’s Kelowna rink will represent the province next year at the 2017 Canadian Visually Impaired Curling Championships in Ottawa.

The Kelowna team defeated a rink from Vancouver 9-2 in the final of the B.C. blind curling bonspiel last weekend at the Kelowna Curling Club.

The local rink features Martell, third Donna Loewen, second Frank Costello, lead Bob Comba and on-ice guide Dan Martell.

Teams from 100 Mile House, Prince George, Vancouver and the host Kelowna competed in the event.

The Prince George and Vancouver rinks will represent the province in February at the Western Blind Bonspiel in Lanigan, Sask.

High school regionals…

The Central Okanagan school district’s regional curling playdowns will be held this weekend at the Kelowna Curling Club.

Thirteen teams will compete in the event on Saturday and Sunday, with one boys and one girls rink qualifying for the B.C. high school championships Feb. 18 to 20 at the Vancouver Curling Club.

The three local rinks competing are the KSS girls, skipped by Megan McGillivray, the George Elliot girls, skipped by Abby Otteson, and the KSS Owls boys, skipped by Ramsay Murray.

Both the boys and girls finals are set for Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
