Cailey Locke & Simon Perry qualified for spots on Canada’s Youth Olympic team

Holy Spirit High School curler Cailey Locke, calling directions at ice level in above photo, got a shout out at CBS council last week after she and her curling partner, Simon Perry of Portugal Cove, won a tournament in Edmonton that qualified them for coveted spots on Canada’s Youth Olympic team. Councillor-at-large Christine Butler saluted the pair for making the squad which will compete in the world championships in South Korea in January. “I congratulate them and as you know I’m a big curling fan,” Butler said. Locke, 16, and Perry, age 17, forced a Game 7 winner-take-all mixed doubles match against Lauren Evason of Manitoba and Jaxon Hiebert of Alberta after the prairie curlers swept their way to an early 3-1 series lead. But “tremendous shot-making by Locke,” according to Curling Canada, particularly in Game 6, forced the deciding match which went in favour of the Newfoundlanders.
