This past weekend the Youth Tournament was held in Edmonton at the Highlands LBC. A big thank you to the club for being great hosts and to all their volunteers that helped prepare refreshments, serve a lunch, prepare the greens each day, play the U25 players and mark the singles games.
U25 players, Jamie Scott and Andrew Mason got some great game experience playing three games on the Saturday. As avid curlers, they are looking forward to their first Canadian experience in bowls.
One young junior boy, Andrew Davison, is off to the Youth Championships for the first time as well. He hopes to gain some valuable experience at the tournament.
Three junior girls played off for medals in a double round robin tournament on Saturday and Sunday. Kiera Schaelow took the gold, playing extremely well and consistently all weekend. She is off to the nationals for her second time. Alexis Gallacher took the silver, and after a fourth place finish at the nationals last year she is eager to see if she can improve on that this year. New bowler, and another avid curler, Kyla Malcolm, received the bronze. This will be her first time at the Youth Championships and she has shown great potential.
Accompanying the youth, along with their chaperones, will be AB Head coach, Derek Dillon and coach Cecilia Gillespie from Highlands.
