Sherry Anderson’s 6th SK Title
Any doubts concerning Stefanie Lawton’s ability to find her A+ game after missing the entire curling season were completely erased this past week in Assiniboia. Sherry Anderson had replaced Stefanie at skip for the bonspiel season while Stefanie tended to her new born son. The team brought in former Saskatchewan Junior Champion Stephanie Schmidt (McVicar) who had just recently returned to Saskatchewan after several years away in Nova Scotia.
The original four that include Sherri Singler and Marliese Kasner reunited for the first time at the Assiniboia Scotties as they had earned a direct a entry to provincials due to their bonspiel performance this year. The team cruised through the 5 game round robin to earn a place in the Page System 1-2 game against Michelle Englot. They did drop that game after some super, game saving shot making by Englot. Lawton’s team played Lana Vey in the semi-finals. After a very short break the Lawton team went back on the ice for the championship final against Englot. A steady Lawton game and a not quite so hot shooting Englot provided the 6-3 Lawton victory in this second meeting of these two teams.
The five-some; Stefanie, Sherry, Sherri, Marliese and Stephanie will head down the highway to Moose Jaw for the 2015 Scotties in Moose Jaw. Included in their squad is former Saskatchewan resident and world curling champion Rick Folk who is the team’s coach. The 2015 Scotties begins on February 14, 2015.
