Team Buchy among frontrunners at BC Juniors
The first six draws have been played and now the frontrunners have emerged at the 2020 BC Junior Curling Championships.
In women’s play, Team Buchy, led by Kimberley’s Kaila Buchy, and Team Taylor sit with a 4-1 records with two more round robin games to play. Team Daniels has a 3-1 record, with only one defeat (against Team Buchy) and play at 2 p.m. today.
Team Sato and Team Colwell are both undefeated in Junior Men’s play, but it won’t stay that way for long. They will meet at 2 p.m. today and the result will help determine the top playoff position.
The 2020 BC Junior Curling Championships are taking place at Victoria Curling Club and will run until Jan. 2.
It is an exciting year for BC teams because the top Junior Women’s team and the two top Junior Men’s teams will represent BC at national championships taking place in Langley. The junior men were offered that second berth as a result of Nunavut withdrawing from the competition. The New Holland Canadian Junior Curling Championships takes place from Jan. 18-26, 2020, at the George Preston Recreation Centre and Langley Curling Club.
