Curling now a stone-cold growth sport


WILLMAR -- In its fifth year, the Willmar Curling Club is "maxing" out.

Civic Center manager Kevin Madsen said the co-ed league has grown to 20 teams. That fills the five sheets for two sessions. Adding teams would mean adding a third 90-minute session.

The club is looking forward to hosting the Minnesota High School Bonspiel on March 13-14.

The tournament is sponsored by the Minnesota Curling Association with the blessing of the Minnesota State High School League.
