Craig Lepine didn’t do as well as his wife on the ice this week.
Craig, his wife Karen, and their friend Mike Pelech – all who play out of the Langley Curling Centre – are in Stratford, Ont. this week for the 2018 Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships.
The seniors competition started Saturday and wraps up today (Thursday).
The men’s Team BC – headed up by Craig – won six of nine games in the competition, not enough to put them in the running for a medal.
Meanwhile, the B.C. women’s team, headed up by Lynne Noble and featuring Karen Lepine, won seven of their games, but in a loss against Nova Scotia this morning (Thursday) by the score of 4-6, they’re out of the running for gold and silver.
At 11 a.m. today, they’ll be competing against Ontario for bronze.
In the meantime, Craig is set to play next week a little closer to home.
The 2018 Canadian Masters Curling Championships (for players 60 years and older) unfold in Cloverdale and White Rock starting Monday, April 1. Action on the ice continues through April 8, and Craig is skip of a team featuring Neil Houston, Craig McLeod, and Kevin Jeannotte. And, this team is being coached by Craig’s wife Karen Lepine.
