A few random notes for a Wednesday afternoon in late February.
Curling falls through the cracks: In case you missed it, and most of us did, the WCSSAA curling championships were held last week with Sir John A. Macdonald and WCI claiming the top prizes.
Coached by Jannine Coburn, the Highlanders team of Sam Domaratzki, Eric Van de Lande, Lachlan Fraser, Riley Domaratzki and Cameron Olmsted captured top spot in the senior boys event.
The Vikings squad of India Jackson, Sarah Wideman, Jessica Lewis, Rita Su and Megan Anderson won the senior girls division. WCI is coached by Lucia Cresswell.
Both teams advance to CWOSSA, which will be held Feb. 28-March 1 in Brantford.
Coach finally gets to make acceptance speech: It's been a long time coming for Jacob Hespeler volleyball coach Steve Domm, who was in great spirits Wednesday night after the Hawks defeated Forest Heights 3-1 in the WCSSAA senior girls final. I don't have the exact number of second-place finishes he's had, but he did admit it was nice to "finally" win the big one.
CWOSSA volleyball tournaments Thursday: A number of local teams will be attempting to earn a trip to OFSAA with the A, AA and AAA tournaments being held at various locations.
The A event is at Woodland Christian with the Cavaliers attempting to move on. Père-René-de-Galinée is competing for the junior title.
The AA senior event is in Paris with St. David and Galt competing, while Glenview Park is competing in the junior event in Brantford.
The AAA senior event is at the University of Waterloo and Forest Heights with Jacob Hespeler, Forest Heights, Huron Heights and St. Benedict aiming for top spot. The junior tournament features Forest Heights, Cameron Heights, SJAM and Resurrection.
CWOSSA wrestling: This year's tournament is slated for Thursday in Fergus. I'll pass along the results as soon as I can get them.
