Cormack claims B.C. championship

Gary Cormack of Surrey and teammates Frank LaBounty, Vince Miele and Allison Duddy went undefeated this past weekend at the Kimberley Curling Club, winning the 2011 BC Wheelchair Curling Championship.

Cormack, a gold medalist at the 2006 Paralympic Games in Torino, Italy, began his weekend by defeating Jim Armstrong 6-3, and followed up with a 10-2 victory over Bob MacDonald’s rink. His 2-0 record placed him in Sunday’s final.

MacDonald opened the final game with a single-point steal, but gave up six points in the following three ends. Cormack maintained control in the final ends, running MacDonald out of stones in the eighth for an 8-3 victory.
