Team Saskatchewan Makes Two Final Appearances
Saskatchewan Masters Women’s Claim Silver Medal
Both Delores Syrota & Eugene Hritzuk skipped their Saskatchewan rinks this past week in Surrey/White Rock, British Columbia at the 2018 Coastland Engineering & Surveying Canadian Masters Curling Championships. Each skip has made an appearance at these championships in the past three years, with Hritzuk winning the bronze medal back in 2016 and Syrota who was your defending champion with their championship win one year ago.
Team Saskatchewan got off to a hot start mid-way through the week, as both advanced to the championship pool, with Syrota going undefeated at 5-0 & Hritzuk squeaking in at 3-3! The men failed to make the playoffs after a few very close games, but the women began to get on a roll as they found themselves back in the canadian final!!
Saskatchewan went down 5-1 early after three ends, and started to make a push back scoring their deuce following it up with a steal. But it just wasn’t quite enough as British Columbia takes the win by a final score of 8-4.
Congratulations on a fantastic week to both Saskatchewan teams!

Undefeated Saskatchewan Bring Home Fire Fighters Championship
What a performance Team Saskatchewan put on display in Thunder Bay, Ontario at the 2018 Canadian Fire Fighters Curling Association Championship!
Gregg Tarasoff, Chris Haichert, Carmen Koch, Tyler Harrison & Director Garnet Zummack went undefeated all week earning them a spot into the championship final Saturday afternoon!
They then faced off against Team Alberta, where they bounced off to a 4-0 lead after the first end of play! But Alberta battled right back scoring a deuce with hammer to start things off, then back to back steals to even this one up heading into the break! After both teams traded the next three points, Tarasoff was left with an open draw to the eight foot for the win and the Canadian Championship for Team Saskatchewan!!
Not only that, but Saskatchewan pulled off another impressive stat as they made a team sweep as First Team All-Stars!
Congratulations on one great week gentlemen!
