Local athletes give students a thrill

The kids at Nor' wester View School are a little fitter today. They got a chance to meet some local athletes Thursday as part of a day to promote physical activity. Star curler Krista McCarville was there to teach students about the sport and promote it a little. She was hoping to increase enrollment in the Little Rock and Junior curling programs at the school.    Olympic gold medalist Haley Irwin was also there.   She loves to see how excited the kids are to see the gold medal and to hold it.  Irwin also gave props to the local schools for helping students follow the Vancouver games.
