Adams earns spot at districts

Rainy River native Diane Adams led her ladies’ rink to a second-place finish at the zone playdowns yesterday in Dryden.
She joined Dryden skip Dawn Sauve for one of the two spots up for grabs at next month’s Scott Tournament of Hearts district playdowns in Terrace Bay.
Angela Lee of Stratton finished out of the running in third in the three-rink event with a 1-2 record.
Sauve beat Adams twice in round-robin action by scores of 8-6 and 7-5. Adams earned her berth by beating Lee 11-1 on Friday and then 7-5 yesterday.
Adams, 36, has lived in Thunder Bay since 1983 but she was playing in the zones under the Rainy River curling club as a lifetime member. Her rink, including third Marla Sobush, second Angie Delpino, and lead Cindy Orr, all from Thunder Bay.
Lee, who also lives in Thunder Bay but was curling under the banner of the Stratton Curling Club, had defeated Sauve 11-3 for her only win in this her first run as a ladies’ competitor.
Just like Adams, her rink was comprised of non-Stratton natives—third Kelli Smith, second Rachelle Neilson, and lead Amy Staciw.
