1955 Bayne Secord Team

Curling (1995)

National School Boys Curling Champions


Bayne Secord returned as skip, Stan Austman moved to third, and Merv Mann and Gary Stevenson became the new players as Ken Moir developed his 1955 team from Tech.

They won the city championship, then beat Bedford Road 5-4 for its sixth straight northern title, and then defeated Grand Coulee, 12-7, in the third game of a best-of-three provincial final.

The team advanced to the Canadian championships in Sydney, Nova Scotia. The team set an undefeated pace most of the week, losing only to Alberta in an extra ender on the second last draw, and they went into the last round, tied with Prince Edward Island for the lead.

In the final, Tech cracked a five-ender on the second end, added deuces on the fourth and sixth, counted three more on the eighth and breezed to a 12-5 victory over P.E.I. During the playoff process from the northerns through the Canadians, they won 18 games and lost three.

It was their second straight Canadian title, and Tech's fourth Canadian title.
