CORNER BROOK Amanda Rumboldt continues to shine on the provincial curling scene.
The 20-year-old Corner Brook curler played third on the gold-medal winning Carolyn Suley foursome at the provincial junior women’s curling championship at the Gander Curling Club over the weekeend.
The Suley foursome, based out of the ReMax Centre in St. John’s, also included second Meryn Avery, lead Nicole Noseworthy and coach Mark Noseworthy.
Skip Suley and company defeated ReMax Centre’s Sarah Hill 5-3 in the championship final Sunday afternoon at the Gander Curling Club.
The two finalists posted identical 5-1 records in the four-rink double round-robin affair. Suley lost 9-3 to Hill in the first round-robin matchup of the two, but bounced back to win the second showdown 6-5 to finish in a deadlock.
Suley’s impressive record included 8-2 and 16-2 victories over Lauren Newell of the Caribou Curling Club in Stephenville, who finished in third place with a record of two wins and four defeats.
The champions defeated the other entry — Megan Kearley of ReMax Centre, who went 0-6, — by scores of 11-2 and 10-2 en route to the showdown with Hill.
Rumboldt shared the spotlight at the Gander Curling Club last season when she helped Kenny Young of Corner Brook capture top honours at the provincial mixed curling championship alongside teammates Stephen Shepherd and Donna Davis.
The Suley foursome will now represent Newfoundland and Labrador at the national junior women’s curling championship Feb. 2-10 in Fort McMurray, Alta.
