Senior Women’s Curling Rink off to Lindsay

Kingston, ON, Canada / CKWS TV

The senior women’s curling team at the Royal Kingston Curling Club looks forward to the upcoming Ontario championships in Lindsay….
Johnna Semple caught up with this talented rink as they practise hard for the provincial tournament….

4 women — some curling for decades, some for only a few years … but all driven by the same goal–playing their best at the upcoming provincial championships.

The Senior Women’s team has moved onto the next level of competition after dramatic wins at the Regionals in Napanee last month.

“Every game came down to the last end, we play eight ends. It could have been lost or won in the eighth end and we were lucky we came out in that tournament and now we’re headed to provincials and we’re so excited.”
Skip, Denise Mulville formed the competitive team this season.
In first and second positions are Liz Brown and Monica Kirk, who have each played the game for about 5 years.
And playing in the Vice position is Suzanne Herron, sister of former junior curling champion Noel Herron.

“My parents were really into curling, so all of us kids were into curling as well. I played in High School, played some competitions, went to provincials with juniors. I took some time off when I had my children and came back as an adult and started at this club here.”

And while this is the first time the team has competed together…Brown credits the experience of her team-mates to reach the next level.

“I’ve never really competed competitively and I’m very grateful for this opportunity with this team because the knowledge and the skill behind the rest of my team is great. They’ve really elevated my game.”

Winning the regionals proved to this foursome and the Kingston curling community that they have what it takes to go all the way.

“There were 17 teams we had to get through to get to Provincials and we beat them out and a lot of these teams that we beat out have been in provincials before so we know we will compete well we go to Lindsay in February.”

“We just got to get our weight down, stay on the broom and hopefully we’ll do well over the five days in Lindsay.”

No question these ladies are on a roll…. and they hope to carry that momentum into the Provincials February 15th.
And who knows, they could move on to Nationals this spring in Fredericton.
