Curl BC awards for Tardi family

Players, coach recognized for achievements in 2015-16 season

The Tardi family of Cloverdale will be prominent next month at the Curl BC awards ceremony in Burnaby.

Tyler Tardi will collect a pair of awards, while father Paul will be called on stage to accept a third.

Curl BC will recognize the best in provincial curling at their annual Awards Banquet June 11 at the Fortius Sport & Health building in Burnaby, the home of Curl BC.

Tardi will share the Junior Male Athlete of the year award with Sterling Middleton of Fort St. John. The pair won a gold medal curling for the Canadian team at the Youth Olympic Games in Norway. Both curlers were also champions at the 2016 Tim Hortons B.C. Junior Men’s Curling Championship and won the bronze medal at the Canadian Junior championships.

Tardi and Middleton are part of the group which won the Team of the Year award. Tardi skipped the team which was first in B.C. and third at nationals, and also included brother Jordan Tardi. Other team members are Daniel Wenzek of Burnaby and Nicholas Meister of Langley.

Paul Tardi coached his two sons on the B.C. Junior Championship team, and will share the Anita Cochrane Award as Coach of the Year with Katie Witt of Coquitlam.

“Widely respected by athletes and coaches, Paul is a true leader,” Curl BC said in press release. “Described by his team as ‘a great role model’ Paul exhibits outstanding sportsmanship both on and off the ice.”

Karen Lepine of Surrey has been named Curl BC’s Female Athlete of the Year.

She started the season with a gold medal at the 55-Plus Games in August at the Vancouver Curling Club, and last November skipped a masters men’s team to victory at a bonspiel, despite being the only woman at the event.

Lepine went on to win the B.C. Masters Curling Championship and represented to province at the national championship in Nova Scotia. She was in Kelowna to skip another team to victory at the Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association/BC Interior Masters Curling Association Combined Championships.
