CONGRATS TO OUR JUNIOR CURLERS!!!

Wow, what a great result for our Girls’ and Boys’ teams at the 2024 BC Winter Games.  It was a fun filled, but very intense, 4 days of curling.  After the Round-Robin play was completed, both the Boys’ and Girls’ teams earned a spot in the semi-finals. 

In their Semi-Final game on Saturday night, an amazing 8th end Skip stone draw by Talana Brown-John, the girls were headed to the Gold Medal game Sunday morning. There they met some excellent competition from the Fraser River Zone 4 team, who took them right to the very end.  Again, Brown-John had an excellent draw on her last rock in the 8th end, putting her stone right on the button.  She forced the Zone 4 Skip to make an equally good draw, which she did, tapping Brown-John’s stone just enough to sit shot rock.  So much excitement, and a Silver Medal for our girls.  It was thrilling!  Congratulations to Talana Brown-John (Skip) and Kelsey Camille (Third), along with their team-mates from Prince George and Dawson Creek, for earning the Silver Medal at the 2024 BC Winter Games!

The boys were not as fortunate, loosing to a very strong Zone 6 Vancouver Island/Central Coast team in the Semi-Finals, hence headed to the Bronze Medal game Sunday morning.  In the Bronze Medal game the play went back and forth between our team and the Vancouver-Coastal Zone 5 team.  Our boys were down by 2 coming home without the hammer, and again, it came down to the 8th end, Skip’s rocks.  With the house jammed up pretty well, the only shot available was an in-off raise-double take-out.  Weight and line were excellent and right to the very end it looked like the shot was a winner   …  unfortunately it only removed 1 of the rocks  …. Bronze Medal went to Zone 5.  The boys earned a very respectable 4th place overall, which they are very proud of!  Congratulations to Brayden Tyrrell (Third) and Eli Sanford (2nd) for curling so well and earning a 4th place at the 2024 BC Winter Games!

One other great note is that our very own Brayden Tyrrell was the winner of the male Sportsmanship Award for the BC Winter Games as voted by the other teams  … what an honour  ….  and very well deserved!!!  Congrats to Brayden on this great honour and accomplishment!

The WL Winter Games curlers couldn’t have done this without a lot of help! Thanks to their parents for all their support, their coaches, both in Williams Lake and in Prince George, for so many hours of dedication and committment, and of course, their sponsors who helped pave the way to getting them to the games.  All of this is so appreciated by the curlers and their families!!!
