Cornwall juniors attend Future Elites

(Sport PEI) Thirty-four athletes from across the province, from different sports and different ages, and including an impressive number of curlers, many from the Cornwall Curling Club, attended Sport PEI’s seventh Future Elites event. The athletes all have one goal: get to the next level. 

Future Elites. Curlers are mainly in the left half of the photo.
 
The group started off the day with Meagan Ferguson from Mind Matters, and looked at getting in the
zone. This was followed by fitness testing similar to “RBC Training Ground”. This group really stepped up to the plate and broke three of Synergy’s testing records.  
 
Before lunch,  the athletes met USports & Canadian Jr. Women’s Wrestling Champion Hannah Taylor.  She told her of her journey from PEI to standing on top of the National podium.  Her message was, ” Always be the best version of yourself, in sport and life.”  
 
After lunch, the group had a workout and a learning session on how to lift, push and pull.  Mark Arendz was a surprise guest and the athletes heard about his amazing Paralympic success, coming home with six medals.
 
Thanks to the 2009 Canada Games Legacy Fund for supporting Future Elites.

Another great year for the Cornwall Curling Club!

Another season has wrapped up at the Cornwall Curling Club, with our U18 teams returning from their nationals in St. Andrews New Brunswick on the weekend. It’s been another great year for our teams, players, and coaches with lots of championships and awards won, including our first member ever to be on a World Championship team! Here’s a wrapup of the 2017-2018 season:

World championships

Lauren Lenentine, left, accompanied Team Jones as an alternate at the world junior championships in early March and will play for the team fulltime in 2018. (Curling Canada)

After her provincial Junior win, Cornwall’s Lauren Lenentine was chosen to be Alternate player on the Katelyn Jones Canadian Junior championship team from Nova Scotia at the World Championships, which went on to win the World title. Later it was announced that she would be joining the team for the 2018-2019 season, replacing a player who has aged out. She will begin competing with them at the end of April when they travel to Calgary for the Champions Cup Grand Slam of Curling from April 24-29.

Team Lenentine also announced that Kristie Rogers will be moving to Newfoundland and Labrador to attend Memorial University, and will be continuing to play Juniors there.

Canadian championships:


Cornwall member Lauren Ferguson competed in the Canadian Mixed Doubles in Leduc Alberta, picking up a win against John Epping and Dana Ferguson and playing some of the world’s best, including Jennifer Jones/Brent Laing, Jocelyn Peterman, and Val Sweeting.

Canadian Juniors

The Lauren Lenentine rink had a great start, winning their first five games in the round robin, and heading to the playoffs at 5-1. but didn’t do so well in the championship round, finishing with a 5-5 win-loss record.

Canadian Boys and Girls Under 18’s in St. Andrews NB.

Team Ferguson from Cornwall, Crapaud, and Charlottetown went 3-3 win-loss, just missing the playoffs and competing in the Mixed Doubles, where David Murphy got to coach the Gold Medal team, Lauren Ferguson played on the Silver Medal team, and Lexie Murray competed in the Bronze Medal game. Cornwall’s Team Mitchell Schut had some very close games, but didn’t pick up a win in the round robin. Colin MacKenzie from Team Schut won the Fair Play award for boy’s leads.

Everest Canadian Seniors in Stratford Ont. 

PEI was represented by the Cornwall teams skipped by Shirley Berry and Bill Hope. They didn’t make the championship round, but Berry finished with an overall record of 4-5,  and Hope went 3-6. 

2018 Coastland Engineering and Surveying Canadian Masters Curling Championship in Surrey/White Rock BC.

Team PEI women, skipped by Cornwall’s Sandy Hope, made the championship pool in the event, finishing with a 5-4 win-loss record overall, while the PEI men, skipped by Cornwall’s Bill Hope, had a combined two wins and seven losses in the round robin and seeding pool. Team PEI’s Craig Mackie won the men’s sportsmanship award.

Regional Championships

Maritime Masters

The Bill Hope rink won the men’s division of the  Maritime Masters Curling Championships at the Bluenose Curling Club in New Glasgow NS. The team normally includes Craig Mackie, but Edgar Coffin substituted for Mackie, who had work commitments, at this event.

The Gloria Clarke and Ruth Stavert duo were runners-up in the women’s event, at the Maritime Stick in Chester NS.

Provincial Championships

Travelers

Cornwall’s Debbie Rhodenhizer rink, which includes Nancy MacFadyen, Sandra Sobey, and Cindy Nicholson, definitely wins the “Extra Effort” award this year, winning two tiebreakers, the semi-final, and then two final games (both in extra ends) against previously-undefeated Melissa Morrow and her rink from the Silver Fox in Summerside. Morrow was a member of the 2015 Travelers Canadian Championship rink, out of Cornwall (our 1st Canadian championship at a Curling Canada event). Team Rhodenhizer will now move on to the nationals at the Miramichi Curling Club in Miramichi New Brunswick, from November 19 to 24, 2018. The Cornwall men’s team, skipped by Garth Cudmore, went 1-5.

It was two championships in six days for both Mitchell Schut from the Cornwall Curling Club and Lauren Ferguson from the Charlottetown, Cornwall and Crapaud clubs, capturing the Under 16 championships on a Sunday afternoon at the Montague Curling Rink after winning the Under 18 on the previous Monday. It was also the third year in a row for Schut winning the U16 Boy’s, while two members of the Ferguson foursome – Katie Shaw and Lexie Murray, were on last year’s Girl’s winning team. Cornwall’s Rachel MacLean team were girls’ runners-up, and MacLean won the girls’ Sportsmanship award.

Besides having the winning and finalist  Boy’s teams and the winning (the Ferguson team are from Cornwall, Crapaud, and Charlottetown) and finalist Girl’s teams as club members, Cornwall members we were also the recipients of the Coaching and both Sportsmanship awards.

It took two tries, but the Mitchell Schut team came out winners over their Cornwall clubmates, skipped by Mitchell’s brother Devin, in the Provincial Under 18 Boy’s Curling Championship, sponsored by PEI Credit Unions, taking place at the Silver Fox in Summerside. Mitchell, who had won two of the three modified triple knockout sections, could have taken the title with a win in the first championship game, but lost after leading 6-1 after 5 ends when his brother came back with a deuce in the sixth, a stolen single in the seventh, and a deuce in the 8th to tie the game 6-all, and then went on to steal three points in the extra for a 9-6 win, forcing the afternoon deciding match.That game was tied at three at the fourth end break, but Mitchell scored a pair of triples in ends 5 and 7 and kept Devin to a single in six to bring the game to handshakes with a 9-4 final score. The Mitchell Schut team includes third Nick Johnston, second Liam Kelly, and lead Colin MacKenzie, with coaches Bill Hope and Lori Robinson,

A steal in the 7th end gave Ferguson a 5-2 lead coming home. Sanderson scored a deuce in the final end, but needed a triple to tie. Sanderson would have needed to win twice today, while Ferguson, who won two out of the three section finals in the event, only needed to win once, and did it on the first try. Playing with the winning Ferguson rink were third Katie Shaw, second Alexis Burris and lead Lexie Murray, with coach David Murphy. Rounding out the Sanderson finalist team were third Emma Coffin, second stone Kaylee Stewart, and lead Anna Maria MacDonald, with coach Edgar Coffin.

Edgar Coffin, coach of the Emily Sanderson team from Cornwall,  finalists in the Girl’s division, was presented with the Coaching award.

Vogue Optical 55+ Games at Charlottetown

Stick: It’s no surprise that the Cornwall Curling Club won all the medals in the Stick Curling competition at the Vogue Optical 55+ Games, hosted by the Town of Stratford, with curling at the Charlottetown Curling Complex, considering their past results, and the fact that all the entries but one were from there. The Gold medals winners were the team of Vernon Chowan & Grant Leard in the Open (any combination of men and women) division, and the Ruth Stavert & Karen Fisher duo in the women’s.
