Chilliwack’s Lisa Deputan rink took top spot in the A event at last weekend’s ladies Chilli Spiel.

The event was held at the Chilliwack Curling Club, and Deputan’s was the last rink standing in a field of 18.

Deputan beat Chilliwack’s Leslie Holtby rink in her Friday morning opener, then beat Richmond’s Michele Baratelli rink on Saturday. A third round win over Chilliwack’s Nancy Wilson landed Deputan in the final, where she beat Chilliwack’s Kelly Jones.

Of the 18 teams in the A event, all but three were local. Other Chilliwack rinks were skipped by Kayleigh Alendal, Sandy Fryer, Helen Murray, Lynda Mundstock, Anne Ramsbottom, Alicia Neid, Kathy Hrischuk, Irene Ormrod, Debbie May, Doreen Jones and Sue Hylkema.

Leslie Holtby went on to finish first in the B event, taking out Hrischuk, Murray and Mundstock in that order.

Ramsbottom took the C event title with wins over Baratelli, Noreen Beauvais (Cloverdale) and Doreen Jones.
