Campbell River hosted its annual Junior curling bonspiel Saturday.

A total of eight teams competed in the Novice Division with Josh Jensen’s Courtenay team taking first place over another Courtenay team skipped by Jordan Koster.

In third place was a Qualicum team skipped by Trevor Bridger.

Finishing fourth was yet another Courtenay team skipped by Brier Pilon.

Taking the last four positions in the standings were the local teams skipped by Madison Turgeon, Dayton Belanko, Keaton Norton, and Isaiah Sheppard. In the Experienced Division, there were six teams that competed.

A team from Nanaimo skipped by John MacDonald defeated a local team skipped by Alex Stoyles to take first place. Stoyles took second with Qualicum’s Christine Patterson’s team curling well enough to take third place.

Steven Franklin’s Nanaimo team finished in fourth place while two local teams, Robbie Krysl and Lane Guggenmos, finished in fifth and sixth place, respectively.

The curlers demonstrated great sportsmanship at all times and many new friends. The local committee would like to thank all the parents for supporting their children by coming out and taking in the action.
