Westman finishes strong at Games

Westman closed out the Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games in Morden, Winkler and the RM of Stanley on Saturday with a big haul.

The region’s athletes brought home seven medals with two gold, a silver and a bronze coming from Special Olympics curling, a gold and bronze in badminton and gold in girls’ hockey.

The region finished third in the medal table with 48 total (19 gold, 14 silver and 15 bronze). Winnipeg Blue finished on top with 62 medals, while Winnipeg Gold had 60.

HOCKEY:

Westman’s hockey team was assured a medal going into Saturday as it worked its way into the gold-medal game, and but it wouldn’t be denied of the gold. Melissa Hunt scored the game’s lone marker in the first period and Kristen Campbell shut the door the rest of the way as Westman beat Central 1-0.

BADMINTON:

Brandon’s Katherine Lee and Olivia Pieroni capped their dominating run in doubles youth girls’ badminton with a 2-0 (21-8, 21-8) win over Central’s Maddi Fraser and Maddie Gylywoychuk in Saturday’s gold-medal match. The Westman pair didn’t lose a set during the Games.

Meanwhile, fellow Brandonite Nicole Russel earned her fifth medal of the Games by defeating NorMan’s Madelyn Lies in the singles junior girls’ bronze-medal match 2-1 (21-13, 19-21, 21-17). Russel won two gold and two silver medals in gymnastics in the first half of the week.

Meanwhile, Jaydan Sisson of Brandon lost his singles youth boys’ bronze-medal match 2-0 (21-17, 21-10) to Interlake’s Landen Gray.

CURLING:

Westman had four teams in the Special Olympics curling event, and all of them came home with medals. Shannon Bauche, Wayne Bauche, Jeff Gardiner and Tammy Lumax of Westman 1 won gold in Division A with a 10-4 win in Saturday’s final over Westman 4, which is made up of James Almas, Art Haggstrom, Rick LaRoque, Sandra Revet and Ian Swain. Trent Gussie, Scott Madder, Ted Mullens and Daryn Thomson of Westman 3 won bronze.

In Saturday’s Division B gold-medal game, Harvey Chambers, Darla Cunningham, Mike Lee, Michelle Ranson and Glen Skayman of Westman 2 beat Central 5-4.

Meanwhile, Westman’s mixed doubles team of Brayden and Kaitlyn Payette lost their fifth-place game 10-4 to Winnipeg Gold.
