March 24, 2014, Vernon, BC (ISN) – The curling teams that will represent BC at the 2015 Canada Winter Games have been decided. Team Daniels and Team Tardi qualified through a playdown event held at Vernon Curling Club from March 21-23.

Team Daniels, made up of 2014 BC junior champion Sarah Daniels, skip, 2014 BC Winter Games champion Dezaray Hawes, third, and the Thompson/Okanagan duo of second Cierra Fisher and lead Sydney Hofer, went undefeated through round robin play to clinch the spot on Team BC.

The winning boys’ team was Team Tardi, with skip Tyler Tardi (2014 W.R. Bennett Award for Athletic Excellence winner, 2013 BC Mixed Doubles champion), third Sterling Middleton,  second Nicholas Umbach (2014 BC High School Curling champion), and lead Timothy Henderson. The team hails from all over the province, with the skip a regular at Langley Curling Club.

With these wins, the two teams will now join with individuals and teams from other winter sports from around the province to form Team BC. They will all travel to Prince George February 13 to March 1, 2015, for the Canada Winter Games.

On the boys’ side, Team Tardi finished 4-1 in their pool to advance to page playoffs. They beat Team Bartlett 7-3 to advance to the final against Team Silversides. A deuce in the first and fourth ends helped Team Tardi (Langley/Fort St John/Victoria) on their way to a 7-2 win in the final.

On the girls’ side, Team Daniels (whose members represent Delta Thistle Curling Club, Royal City Curling Club, Kamloops Curling Club and Vernon Curling Club), did not have to play in a final to clinch their win. By going undefeated through round-robin play, they were declared winners.
