School sports curling: Munro becomes youngest winner
Robyn Munro, a nine-year-old from Rephad Primary School, became the youngest player to win a Royal Caledonian Curling event when she helped her mother’s rink win the Unders and Overs at Stranraer.
Scottish Internationalist Gail Munro’s team also included Debbie Torbet and Katie Wright and it was a close final, the Stranraer outfit winning 4-3 against Vicki Adams’ and her line-up of Kate Adams, Kerry Adams and Lauren Morgan. Wright and Morgan are both pupils at Stranraer Academy.
Going into the final end all square, Adams had a chance to tie after Munro’s last draw to guard bounced a little too far leaving her shot exposed. But the last stone ran out of the house.
Munro also won the 2012 Unders and Overs – two players are over 25 and two are under 25 – but with a different team. “Robyn wasn’t originally in my rink this year but she was desperate to play,” said Gail, who has competed for Scotland in World Championships.
Robyn, a primary five pupil who turned nine last month, had a personal highlight when, playing lead, she secured a double take out in the third and fourth ends.
