Miles Macdonell Collegiate excelled in girls curling, in the early days of MHSAA. In 1969 the girl’s team lost in the semi-finals of the provincial championships (to eventual winner Dauphin) and then proceeded to win the next three. 

Their first girl’s championship, in 1970, may have been the sweetest, as it was Manitoba’s Centennial year and the MHSAA girl’s provincial championship became a Centennial project hosted by the St.James-Assiniboia School Division, at the Highlander Curling Club. 

The 1970 team members were Maureen Jackson (skip), Cathy Pidzarko, Chris Pidzarko and Margaret Sader. 

The 1971 championship team consisted of Maureen Jackson (Skip), Cathy Pidzarko, Chris Pidzarko, and Gaye Birchall. The championships were in Brandon and Miles Macdonell defeated Silver Heights in the final. 

In 1972 Chris Pidzarko (Skip), Cathy Pidzarko, Janet Walker, and Linda Walker won the third consecutive MHSAA provincial championship for Miles Macdonell.
