A Chilliwack/Langley team has qualified for the 2019 B.C. U-18 Curling Championships.
Sarah McCrady led her crew into battle at last weekend’s Lower Mainland playdown at the Mission Curling Club.
McCrady was joined by Tanis Short (third), Madeline Britz (second) and Naomi Britz (lead) with Ken Britz coaching.
The tournament featured eight teams with three qualifying spots up for grabs.
McCrady started strong with back-to-back one-sided wins over Port Moody’s Paige Phillips (9-2) and Delta/Langley’s Emily Bowles (6-2). But another Bowles, Elizabeth, representing Delta and Juan de Fuca, stopped her in the A event final with a 5-2 win.
McCrady’s rink was bumped to the B event final where they took another loss, falling 7-2 to Royal City/Tunnel Town’s Jenson Taylor.
McCrady had one last crack at it, heading into the C event. A 5-4 win over Emily Bowles sent the locals on to the final where a four-point third end was the turning point in an 8-5 win over the Golden Ears Winter Club’s Amy Wheatcroft.
The 2019 B.C. U-18 Curling Championships takes place March 12-17 at the Juan de Fuca Curling Centre
