Salmon Arm Secondary’s girls curling team went undefeated this past weekend in the Okanagan High School Playdowns to earn a spot in the B.C. High School Provincial Curling Championship.

The team of Lorelei Guidos and sisters Mikaela, Jenn and Danielle Paetsch defeated teams from South Kamloops Secondary and Kelowna Secondary convincingly on Saturday and closed out the sweep with a tight game in the final, a rematch with Kelowna.

Their hard work is paying off. In addition to Monday practice, Tuesday league, Thursday Juniors, and Inter City League, coach Darryl Horne opens the club for Wednesday morning practice each week at 7:30 a.m., and often the girls get SACC manager, Darcy Seghers, to open up early on Thursday and Friday.

The Provincial Championship will be held Feb. 18 to 21 in Creston.
