BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF — The Grey Highlands Secondary School (GHSS) mixed (boys and girls) curling team has advanced to the Central Western Ontario Secondary Schools Association (CWOSSA) playoffs to be held at the Shelburne Curling Club on February 28 and March 1.
The team plays in the boys league/division and finished the Bluewater Athletics Association (BAA) regular season in 1st place with 5 wins and 1 loss.
They competed in the BAA playoffs in Owen Sound on February 15. An 11-5 win against Hanover's John Diefenbaker Senior School (JDSS) in the preliminary round advanced the team to the 'A' Final where they were named BAA Champions with a 7-5 win against Wiarton's Peninsula Shores District School (PSDS).
The GHSS team is coached by Krista Kuhl and Julia Van Bommel.
All members of the team grew up curling in the Markdale Curling Club junior program and played in their respective elementary school curling programs (including traveling for provincial level bonspiels) before attending GHSS. The team will practice for the big tournament at the Markdale Curling Club this week.
They will test their skills against advancing teams from other districts across the Central Western Ontario region, including Wellington, Dufferin, Waterloo, Brant and Norfolk counties.
GHSS will be joined by Saugeen District Secondary School (SDSS), who also advanced to the CWOSSA playoffs on February 15, representing the Bluewater Athletics Association (BAA) district.
