They hurried hard this past weekend and now three teams from Carpenter High School in Meadow Lake participate in regionals early next month.
Meadow Lake played host to the northwest districts on Saturday, Feb. 10, where nine teams from across the region took part in a series of round robin games.
The girls team won gold after winning two games. Two Carpenter High boys teams faced off against one another in the final, so both will be heading to finals in Blaine Lake next month. Ernie Studer School from Loon Lake took gold in the mixed final.
Girls team skip Ashley Albert said her teammates felt confident and having home ice made a difference. The team will be heading to regionals in Allan.
“I wasn’t expecting to come out of there with gold,” she said. “We played really good, probably the best we ever have, and it was really good. Since we had home ice, we had an advantage there and played well. I’m proud of our team.”
The boys team gold winner skip Brody McAmmond said the boys pulled ahead to take their games with scores of 14-4 and 11-3.
“They’ve curled the best I’ve seen them curl," he said. “Our third played really good, Mason Rediron, he didn’t miss very much and then we just snuck rocks around got lots of points.”
Coach Kendra Paramchuk said the teams are feeling very positive and focus on improving their play with each game.
“It was nice for the kids to play at home,” she said. “We’re young. We lose one curler next year, so these guys to advance to regionals definitely helps them for years down the line just to get this experience and see some really good quality curling at regionals will definitely help us. Looking forward to playing some other teams in the province.”
The winners from the regionals will qualify for provincials which will take place in Ituna.
