The Quesnel Curling Centre was busy last weekend (Jan. 19-21) with the Quesnel Ladies Curling Club holding its 58th annual Wheel ‘n’ Spiel.

Twenty teams played off over the weekend, which saw the Lori Freeman rink take the A event.

Lori and her teammates, Carly Backer, Rhonda Christenson and Maryanne Morrison beat the Whitney Christy rink in a close game — they were tied after the fourth and sixth ends — by a score of 8-5.

Playing with Whitney were Kathy Somerville, Angela Curle and Nancy Last.

Placing third and fourth in the A event were the Lori Wawyrk and Wendy Needham teams.

The winner of the B event was the Terry Shpak team.

Terry and her teammates, Jenny Rubisch, Diane Sanderson and Jamie Wilson, beat the Connie Pomeroy rink in a close game, tied after the fifth end, by a score 5-3.

Playing with Connie were Linnea Hedden, Julie Thony and Sue Vachon.

Placing third and fourth in the B event were the Donna Wawryk and Evelyn Lawson teams.

The winner of the C event was Kaye Lynn Thompson from Prince George, and her teammates, Selena Gook, now in Westlock, Alberta; and Paige Flanagan and Raeille Perry, both from Quesnel.

Kaye, a former high school curler in Quesnel, beat the Dana Johansen rink in another good game, tied after the fourth end, by a score 7-3.

The third and fourth place finishers in the C event were Cathy Karey and Gloria Ardell rinks.
