It's Day Two of the huge high school ASAA south central zone championship that's been packing the Cochrane Curling Centre.

A total of 24 teams in mixed, men's and women's events converged on Cochrane for the championship, including three teams from both Bow Valley and Cochrane High.

Bow Valley High is hosting the championship, and coordinator Eric Richard says it's been a couple of years since it was last held here.

"There's eight teams in each category and I think it's the first time that I can remember we've had the full eight teams," says Richard.  "So, this is a good facility to host it. If we didn't have all six sheets, we wouldn't have been able to host all eight teams."

He's witnessed growing interest in the sport at Bow Valley in recent years.

"They practice here throughout the year and so we get to play on our home ice, which is great."

Right now, qualifiers for the medal rounds are underway. The final draws get underway at 3:30 p.m.
