Chilliwack’s Janet Klebe rink wins masters curling provincials

Klebe will now lead her crew into a national tournament in New Brunswick later this month.

Chilliwack’s Janet Klebe led her team to victory at the B.C. Masters Curling Championships, which were held Mar. 3-8 at the Cowichan and Kerry Park Curling Clubs.

Deputan curled alongside Kerri Miller (third), Laurie Shimizu (second) and Donna Christian (lead) in an eight team field.

The locals went 5-2 in round-robin play, opening last Tuesday with a thrilling 9-8 win over Vernon’s Kathy Pederson.

Klebe’s crew was one of three moving on to the championship round.

She faced Nanaimo/Qualicum’s Debbie Erdos in a semi-final, scoring five in the third end en-route to a 7-4 win.

That set Klebe up against Royal City’s Cindy House in the championship match.

Klebe posted three in the third end to pull ahead 4-1, adding two in the fifth and one in the seventh in a 7-3 win.

Team Klebe, which is coached by Vic Shimizu, will now travel to the 2020 Canadian Masters Curling Championships in Rothesay and Saint John, New Brunswick, from Mar. 30 to Apr. 5.
