Prinse rink off to provincials

The Chilliwack Curling Club is sending Stephanie Prinse and her rink to the Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships in Victoria.

A Chilliwack Curling Club junior women’s team skipped by Stephanie Prinse won the B event at the Curl BC Coastal Playdowns, held in Chilliwack last weekend.

Eight teams competed on the women’s side, vying for a berth in the year-end provincial championship.

The women started with a Saturday afternoon win, bumping Richmond’s Shawna Jenson 8-5 in draw one.

Chilliwack’s only loss came in draw two, a 7-1 thumping at the hands of Victoria’s Brandi Tinkler rink.

Sunday morning saw Prinse and company upend Victoria’s Merit Thorson rink 9-3.

They followed that with an 8-6 win over Brittany McAulay’s rink from Richmond (one that includes Chilliwack native Kayleigh Alendal).

The Prinse rink finished the event with some revenge, doubling the Tinkler rink 8-4 in the final.

Ali Renwick is the second, Dana Page the third, Amanda Tipper the lead and Casey Freeman the fifth.

The team is coached by Dorren Jones.

The 2012 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships run Dec. 27-31 in Victoria.
