After a few previous trips to the Senior Women’s provincials the past number of years, Lorraine Arguin finally got her Provincial Senior Women’s Championship. Her Moose Jaw team of Donda Lee Deis, Shelley Urquhart, and Connie Fritzler defeated the Darlene Gillies Team (Unity). Gillies Team went undefeated in the 8 Team Round Robin while the Arguin Team finished second place with a 5-2 record. In the semi-final, the Arguin team had defeated 3rd place finishers, Cathy Inglis (Yorkton).
Darrell McKee, the rookie skip in Seniors, but no stranger to Provincial Championship wins in the Men’s, lead his team to the Saskatchewan Senior Men’s Provincial Title. Darrell is supported by Mark Lane, Rick Picard and Brad Gee. The McKee Team (Saskatoon Nutana) finished the round robin in a 3 way tie for first place with the Al Schick Team (Regina Highland) and Glenn Heitt Team (Unity). McKee was awarded first place and a bye to the final by virtue of the team’s skill based ranking (accumulative distance of last stone draws for hammer). The Schick and Heitt teams battled in the semi-final with Al Shick’s team advancing to play McKee in the final.
Team Arguin and Team McKee will now wear the green and white at the 2014 National Senior Championship in Yellowknife, NWT March 22-30.
