    The Morrin School Senior Girls Curling team have proved their dominance again at the provincial level winning the title and completing the three-peat.
    The team is made up of skip Shelby Primrose, third Taylor Olmstead, second Kayla Adams, lead Amanda Holowath and coached by Betty Primrose, competed in the tournament in Lethbridge on March 2-4 and came home with their third championships in as many years.
    “It went excellent,” said coach Betty Primrose.
    The Morrin team dominated in the round robin, and then they crossed over, they faced a tough match in the semifinal.
    “In the eighth end Shelby drew to the four foot to win,” said Primrose. “She clinched the win.”
    The final wasn’t close as they dominated Lethbridge for the gold medal.
    “There has not been a streak this long, we looked on the plaques when we were down there,” said coach Primrose. “Some schools have won twice, but not back-to-back, we kind of set a record.”
    That is it for the season for the team, aside from some recreational bonspiels. For the ones that graduate Primrose expects they may play at the post-secondary level.
    As for Primrose, her youngest daughter will be graduating, so she is retiring from coaching.
    Despite this, she says they have a good core that can keep the streak alive.
    “They just have to put the hard work in. We start in November and were playing in U18 bonspiels to bring our level of play up so when you go into your own competition you have the mental set ready,” said Primrose.
