A local curling team with a Cloverdale connection has edged closer to qualifying for the B.C. Junior Curling Championships.
Team Tardi won the men’s inaugural BC Junior Curling Tour event, the Anita Cochrane Memorial Cashspiel at Royal City Curling Club, defeating Team Kiss 8-2 in the final.
Cloverdale resident Tyler Tardi’s team – third Daniel Wenzek, second Jordan Tardi, lead Nicholas Meister and fifth Sterling Middleton – dominated the weekend, winning all their games.
Team Sarah Daniels won the women’s event, defeating Team Brown 7-0 in the final.
Tardi and Daniels are now sitting at the top of the BC Junior Curling Tour standings, with four tour events remaining. The top two teams from each gender on the tour will automatically qualify for the 2016 Tim Hortons BC Junior Championships, set for Dec. 29 to Jan. 3 in Kamloops.
