The Star incorrectly reported this week that had the Sarah Koltun team defeated Quebec in last Friday’s tiebreaker at the junior curling championships in Fort McMurray, it would have been the first Yukon rink to reach the medal round at the national juniors.
The Star has been reminded, however, that 26 years ago, back in 1988, the Yukon rink of skip Michele Cowan, Dawn Nolan, Shea MacKenzie and Dawn Moses finished with bronze medal honours.
And just for the record, after finishing in a five-way tie for first place at the junior men’s championships in 1993, the Yukon representative from Atlin was awarded third after a series of tiebreakers. The rink consisted of skip Bob Smallwood, Allen Shaw, Alfred Feldman and Scott
Odian. Smallwood and his wife Jody Smallwood will be representing the Yukon at next month’s first-ever national mixed-double championships in Leduc, Alta.
