After winning the tie breaker in the Junior Provincial Championship at the Okotoks Curling Club earlier this month, Team Van Amsterdam was positioned against Team Young in the Junior Men’s final. After battling in an extra end, Team Young beat Team Van Amsterdam for the 2018 Junior Men’s Provincial Champion title and a spot in the National Championship. Team Skrlik and Team Sturmay went head to head in the Junior Women’s final where Team Sturmay came out on top to secure their respective title and the Junior Women’s spot in the National Championship.
Good luck Team Alberta!
