Four Terrace ladies competed in the curling provincials on Feb. 15-21, earning fourth place and having a great time.

Competing against the eight top teams from five zones in the province, the Terrace senior ladies (50+) played seven games in the round robin, finishing third and advancing to playoffs.

Their playoff game came down to the final rock, and Terrace narrowly lost to Foster team, who went on to win first overall.

Team skip Lisa Bullied says all four of the ladies have been curling over 30 years, but they put this team together for zones and it was their first time playing as a team.

“We curl really well as a team,” said Bulleid. “We all curl out of the same club so we are all friends, and we have played against each other before so we know how each other curls. We really came together and played well.”

Bullied adds that the event was really enjoyable and had a really good atmosphere.

“The other teams were really friendly and awesome… everybody is competitive but they were really friendly and had really good sportsmanship,” she said. “We are looking forward to competing again next year.”
