The Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute girls’ curling team recently won a bronze medal at the OFSAA competition in North Bay, a provincial event. The girls represented Eastern Ontario at the competition after winning at the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Competition. They were recognized at an assembly at VCI on Friday.
