Local Wheelchair Curlers Win Silver Medal

Four Wheelchair Curlers from the Ilderton Curling Club were awarded the Silver Medal at the Ontario ParaSport Games held last weekend in Huntsville.  The Games are held every two years and over 400 Athletes compete in a variety of sports.

Six curling teams representing Northern and Southern Ontario were entered in a round robin competition.  At the end, there was a four way tie for first place and the Ilderton team qualified for a tie-breaker game for the Gold Medal.  The Ideson team faced off against a team from Bradford which they had already beaten in the round robin competition.  Ilderton came up short in the final game however and were awarded the Silver ParaSport medals.  

Bradford won the Gold Medal and a Toronto team won bronze.

With Ideson were Mike Munro at 3rd, Tony Reynen at 2nd, Lead Shannon Wilcox and Coach Ernie Comerford.

Ideson' team has only been together one year but continued their winning ways.  In January they won the Ontario Provincial Championship and will now represent the Province in Thunder Bay, March 18 - 25 to compete for the Canadian Championship. At that event they will play against ten other teams from almost every jurisdiction in Canada.
