Team Tardi clinches berth at BC Junior Curling Championships

A successful junior tour has assured Tyler Tardi rink a spot at 2016 BC Junior Curling Championships

A team with a connection to Cloverdale has secured its spot at the 2016 provincial championships, thanks to a successful B.C. Junior Curling Tour.

Team Tyler Tardi’s rink of third Daniel Wenzek, second Jordan Tardi, lead Nicholas Meister and fifth Sterling Middleton have risen to the top spot, winning three out of four appearances on the tour.

The team plays out of the Langley Curling Club, and the Tardi brothers attend Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary.

Four junior curling teams that participated on the tour are heading to the 2016 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships, taking place at the Kamloops Curling Club Dec. 29 to Jan. 3.

The tour was held at five curling centres, with the final event at the Esquimalt Curling Club Nov. 13-15.

Team Sarah Daniels’ rink of third Dezaray Hawes, second Marika Van Osch and Lead Megan Daniels finished with the top junior women’s score.

“It has been great to see so many young teams get the opportunity to compete early in the season,” said five-time B.C. men’s champion Jim Cotter, who was instrumental in setting up the junior curling tour. “We’re glad the inaugural tour has been so warmly by everyone and we hope to see it grow bigger and better every year.
