Robson and team capture BC championship

The Noble rink won all their games in Enderby

Courtenay’s Colleen Robson and her teammates on the Noble rink won all their games en route to defending their BC senior (50+) women’s championship in Enderby, an eight-team event that wrapped up Sunday.

Robson — the 2017 seniors champ — was in good company. Skip Lynne Noble of Qualicum won the B.C. seniors titles in 2011 and 2017. Third Penny Shantz of Nanoose helped Canada win a gold medal at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. And newcomer Karen Lepine, lead, of the Lower Mainland, is the 2015 national masters champion. Seven-time B.C. men’s champion Jim Cotter coaches the Noble rink.

By winning provincials, the team advances to senior nationals March 24-29 in Stratford, Ont. They won bronze last year.
