For the second year in a row, a rink skipped by Karen Lepine was victorious at the Peace Arch Curling Club’s annual Ice Mice Ladies Bonspiel.
Lepine’s team, from Langley, rolled undefeated through the three-day tournament – which wrapped up with finals Sunday afternoon – by winning each of their five games, including the ‘A’ final.
The Ice Mice title pads an impressive curling resumé for Lepine, who is a former B.C. senior women’s and mixed champion.
The Ice Mice ‘B’ final was won by a Vancouver Island rink skipped by Lynn Noble, who defeated one of the host teams – a Peace Arch rink skipped by Divera Meeres.
Richmond’s Kim Thompson rink was the winner in the ‘C’ division.
In total, 24 teams took part in the bonspiel, 22 from the Metro Vancouver area, and two from afar – Noble’s Vancouver Island team and the Emily Good rink, from the Seattle Granite Curling Club.
Next up for the Peace Arch Curling Club is the annual Senators and Ladies Bonspiel, which is set to run Oct. 22-25. PACC’s master’s men’s bonspiel is also scheduled for Nov. 2-4.
