WAYLAND, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Over 50 years ago, a curling club was created in Wayland, and to this day it remains the largest of its kind in Massachusetts— with some of its members learning how to curl just after learning how to walk.
WBZ's Madison Rogers spoke to Evan Mulaney, Co-Coordinator of the College Program at Broomstones Curling Club about his deep roots in the sport.
"Yeah, so I've actually been a member since I was four-and-a-half years old— so this place basically raised me," Mulaney said.
Since his start, Mulaney has seen the BCC's group of teenager members grow up and rise to the national level in the National Curling Championship in Denver, Colorado. Addison Neill of Natick, Kailey Price of Worcester, Alexa Pekowitz of Wellesley, and Julia Pekowitz of Wellesley all competed in the competition out west from January 12, to Sunday, January 15.
Club members gathered to cheer their colleagues on and watch them compete.
"A couple years ago we also had one of our members go to the Olympic Games out in Switzerland and we had viewing parties here at two in the morning," Mulaney said.
Broomstones is a member of the United States Curling Association and the regional Grand National Curling Club, according to its website.
