On the weekend of November 21st my team competed in junior zones for the 2016 season. It was double knock-out format between my team and the other Prince George girls team (Withey). Our first game went into an extra end, and wasn't looking so good until my third, Bailey Eberherr, made a very nice run-back triple:) After this shot we were golden. My last rock was an open hit for the win; a skip's dream. Our second game, a chance to finish the weekend, was later that day. In the last end we were up two points with the hammer, and as it came down to last rock the other team was sitting two behind guards. One rock was biting the twelve foot and the other was back button. It was my job to out draw one of them or we would be playing another extra end. It turned out to be a great team shot, I threw it well, the sweepers judged it perfectly, and Bailey called line to make sure we were by the guards. We made it perfectly, sitting on the button to score one and win 7-4. Those two games put us into Junior Provincials this year. As a team we agreed that we needed to set some high goals that we would work for for when we go to provincials on December 28th. I'm not going to share our goals because those are for us to know and work at, but I will say that one of the things we are doing to possibly achieve these goals is we've all agreed to try and throw 250 practice rocks each before we leave. These practice rocks are on our own time outside of team practices. I can't speak for other teams, but I can speak for my team, and I think provincials is going to have some very high end curling:)
