Team SK Canadian Junior Curling Championships Blog #2

Team SK Men

Only one game on the schedule today for us so it was nice to get a bit of
rest early in the day.

After lunch we went to watch the Team Sask women’s game then back to the
hotel for a short rest.

A quick bite to eat then off to our first game played at the Prince Albert
Curling Club. Hats off to the curling club employees and to the volunteers.
The curling club looks great.

We finished the day off with a win against Team newfoundland which leaves us
with a record of 4-1 in round robin play.

We play our final round robin play against Team Yukon Tuesday 7 pm.

We would like to thank the parents, families and friends and the local
spectators cheering us on. It’s a great feeling to see all of the Sask

One more win today against Team Yukon puts us at a record of 5-1 through regular pool play. Second best record overall. We now play the top 4 teams from the other pool. Top 3 teams after that advance to playoff. We play Team Quebec at 2 pm at the Art Hauser Centre on Wednesday.

Our parents are having a great time at the parents nights. Food is great. Lots of fun.

Team SK Women

Round robin is over and we are off to the championship round! With a total of 6 games played we are happy to have finished with a 4-2 record. Although we thought we had a pretty relaxed schedule, man were we wrong.

The past few days have been busy. Between playing games, eating, practicing, and of course cheering on our favourite teams (Team Host & Team SK Men). We have been ran off our feet in the best way possible.

The championship round begins tonight at 7:00 p.m. against defending world champions Team Nova Scotia!

Thanks to everyone who has been following and cheering us on. We appreciate all the support so far!
