Local curler Morgan Beech recently competed at the Provinicial Juvenile Curling Playdowns in Lake Cowichan, March 3-6.

This was the fourth time at this level of competition in the past five years. This time around Beech played with the Rice rink based of Nanaimo, which included skip, Shaelyn Rice, third, Marika Van Osch and lead Talya Jesperson. In the previous years, Beech played with teams based out of Victoria, Duncan and Campbell River.

Beech came home with a bronze medal from the 2008 BC Winter games, along with local curler Nicole McCurrie, so the silver medal this year is her top achievement in the sport at this point.

The competition was tough this year, but the games were well played. The Rice rink lost out 4-1 to the Brown rink from Kamloops, who are last years Gold winners and who also curl at the Junior Level.

Beech thanked the Naniamo Curling Club for all their support and the City of Campbell River for donating the pins that were passed out at the event.
