PACC Jr Curler Wins Juvenile Provincial Title

Sarah Loken, a junior curler at the Peace Arch Curling Club, won the girls Juvenile provincial championships last weekend in Lake Cowichan.

The Girls’ event was won by Team Drexel who was unbeaten throughout the entire event. The rink includes curlers from Cloverdale, Peace Arch and Coquitlam.

Even though they topped their qualification pool, Team Drexel faced a tough fight to make it into the Girls’ gold medal game. In their semi-final the rink of skip Heather Drexel, third Sarah Loken, second Bailey Burke, lead Catera Park and fifth Kylie Karroway, were forced to play an extra end after their opposition stole two in the eighth.

The final was a more straight forward game as Drexel defeated Prince George’s Team Withey 8-2 to claim the gold.

Drexel will now go on to Edmonton to represent the province at the Optimist U18 International Juvenile Curling Championships from April 1-5.
