Team Buchy wins 2020 BC Juniors title
The rocks have all been thrown and now the champions are known at the 2020 B.C. Junior Curling Championships in Victoria.
Team Buchy and Team Sato will represent B.C. at the 2020 New Holland Canadian Junior Curling Championships in Langley.
In women’s play, the game was a 10-end nail-biter that ended in Team Buchy’s favour. Kaila Buchy from Kimberley made an out-turn pick to sit for two on her last rock to clinch the 8-6 win over Royal City/Tunnel Town’s Team Taylor.
“It was like slow motion. The rock couldn’t get there quickly enough. But once it hit the hog line I sort of knew. We are so excited and so happy,” said Kaila Buchy.
Meanwhile in men’s play, a steal of four in the eighth end brought an abrupt finish to what had been a relatively close game between Team Sato and Team Tao. The score was 9-3 to Team Sato, who had been undefeated throughout the competition.
Team Buchy consists of members from Kimberley, Kelowna and Vernon, with Skip Kaila Buchy from Kimberley, along with coach Tom Buchy. Third is Jaelyn Cotter, Second is Katelyn McGillivray, Lead is Cassidy Schwaerzle. Fifth is Samantha Mclaren. Jim Cotter is co-coach.
