Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta I 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, March 16, 1974 Seek to retain trophy The Lethbridge Community College Rodeo Club won the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Associ- ation high point trophy last year and will be out to retain it this season. The first step will be taken March 30 at the Exhibition Pavilion when the locals host the first college indoor rodeo of the year.

All major rodeo events will be on display at the March 30 event. Four Turcotte brothers could tangle TORONTO (CP) None of the veteran horsemen around Woodbine racetrack can recall four brother's ever riding on major thoroughbred tracks at the same time, so Roger Turcotte seems about to set a precedent. Roger. 19, plans to make his debut as a jockey in about two months, and he'll have a tough act to follow. Brother Ron Turcotte, the eldest at 32, has been one of the top riders in the United States for several years and last year became even more famous after riding Triple Crown winner Secretariat. Brother Noel, 31, is consid- ered one of the best jockeys in Ontario, while Rudy, 24, has been equally successful riding at eastern U.S. tracks- Trainer Gord Huntley, who helped start Ron and Noel on their way, is schooling Roger. Rudy also made his start in Ontario under the guidance of trainer Pat Remillard. "I think Roger will be a great one in just a matter of Huntley said Thursday while Roger jogged a two- year-old around an indoor training track near Woodbine. "He'll never have a weight problem. He's a good worker and he likes horses. Right now, he's about two months away from his first race." Woodbine's first meeting opens May 15: Coaldale wins pennant Coaldale Truck Centre captured the 1973-74 Old Man River Men's Hockey League pennant title recently.

Farm Implements Ltd. 3214 5th AvwNM North, PhOM 327-5512 or 327-2043 The Truck Centre didn't have an easy time in doing so though as three other clubs in the eight-team league gave them a run for their money. The pennant winners earned the title by scoring 12 victories, two losses and three ties for 27 points which was only two points better than the second place finishing Shaughnessy, who picked up 25 points on 12 wins, four losses and a tie. Third place went to Southern Signs with an 11-5-1 record while Picture Butte finished fourth with a 9-6-2 standing. Tex Weibe of the Truck Centre led all scorers in the league with 31 goals and 14 assists for 45 points while team-mate Doug Reynolds Jr. was the top netminder with a 2.35 goals against average along with four shutouts. Roger admits he's "not quite ready yet." "1 need a little more ex- perience and I'll wait for Mr. Huntley to give me the go sign." The Turcotte brothers are natives of Grand Falls, N.B., and Roger says a fifth brother, 17-year-old Gaetan, "has it in his mind to be a jockey." Roger said he made his decision to come to Woodbine after talking to his older brothers and watching them ride. He joined Huntley last June. "The first morning, Mr. Huntley put me on four horses to gallop. I've been exercising horses ever since as well as mucking out stalls and doing other work around the barn.

"This was our last year in the schoolboy and we made it what more could anybody ask said the 18-year-old Ross Sheppard High School skip after trouncing Doug Bradley's Kelowna, B.C. rink 15-4 in a sudden-death playoff. "But it was three years of hard King added, shaking his shoulder-length hair. "You'd have to be there to experience the hours we put into this year after year... and we finally make it it's said the Grade 12 student. The win is the seventh for Alberta in schoolboy curling in 15 years. The championship was forced into the sudden-death round when both B.C. and Alberta lost in the final draw of the six-day round-robin tournament.

CURLED BADLY Bradley, who at one time held firm command of the championship, said after the heartbreaking sudden-death loss that his rink curled their worst game of the tournament. "Our shots just seemed to get heavier and heavier and we just didn't hit on target... but I hope to be back next year. I have one more year in schoolboy." "They blew it on the sixth end." said King. "They beat us on the sixth end Tuesday night when they picked up four and we beat them on the same end tonight when we picked up five." Alberta had a 7-2 lead going into the sixth round of the last Manitoba gals best EDMONTON (CP) Mani- toba won the Canadian girls' curling championship Friday when Chris Pidzarko of Winni- peg struck for five on the third end and held on to defeat Linda Tweedie's British Columbia rink from North Vancouver 10-6 in a sudden- death playoff.

It was the second champion- ship performance in three years for Miss Pidzarko. who had twin sister Cathy at third, Patti Vandekerckhove at second and Barbara Rudolph at lead. She won the girls' crown in 1972 and placed second last year. game. Bradley had last rock and Alberta was lying five. He missed and the game became a "runaway said King. "It was no spectator's game.... After Bradley blew the shot in the sixth we were off like a said King, sipping on a bottle of victory champagne. King's Hannah, third, Bill Fowlis second and King's brother Chris hope to continue curling together. But King says it's "hard to work and curl at the same time.... You don't have the time like you do in school." Earlier in the week, King had expressed displeasure with his rink's curling. "We turned it all around after Wednesday's round.... We weren't curling well and we had a meeting and decided that if we're going to win this tournament we've got to curl and curl well. "Our game is a hitting game and we weren't hitting but we sure hit he said with a smile.
