A team of players from Terrace and Prince Rupert recently competed in the Ladies BC curling provincials in Kelowna Feb. 15 – 19.

Cheryl Wyatt, Joan Kucharyshen and Marnie Matthews from Terrace, and Linda Scott from Prince Rupert attended the event.

Wyatt said the experience was good, but also a little bit intimidating, as players commonly on the national and global stage intermixed with other players from around B.C.

“It was just really exciting to be there, and there were lots of people you had heard of before and never met,” Wyatt said.

Out of eight teams, the northwest ladies came seventh, with one win and six losses.

Wyatt explained that games were noisy and the venue busy as four men’s teams and four women’s games played at once on Kelowna’s 12-sheet curling rink.

“I was kind of a bit nervous at first, and then we just played,” she said.

Surprisingly, the team had no competition to get to the event, as they were the only team from the area who registered to go.

In all, Wyatt said the ladies had a great trip.
