Mr. Speaker, I rise today to salute the Fenelon Falls Secondary School girls
curling team which has earned a berth in the upcoming provincial high school curling championships in Sault Ste. Marie starting today until March 25.
We have all heard of the surprise performance in sporting competition, the small conquering the large, the David and Goliath syndrome. The courageous team I speak of, skip Jennifer Dickson, vice-skip Andrea Howard, second Cayley Rodd and lead Christina Dunn, won but a few games in the Cannington-Lindsay-Fenelon league this year.
However, in true underdog fashion the team peaked at the right time, finally winning a shootout against Trenton to see which team would represent central Ontario region at the all-Ontario provincials.
It is the first team from Fenelon Falls to compete at the championships and it will face a level of competition never before experienced.
I salute this team as it heads into uncharted waters and wish it all the best as it represents all central Ontario schools at the provincials.
