Team Van Osch is gearing up for provincials in Prince George, March 7 to 10. The team took home silver last year and now are shooting for gold.

Team Van Osch won both its games at the Powell River playdowns to secure a place in the juvenile provincials. The curlers span from 15 to 17 years old and play out of Juan de Fuca curling club.

The team is Sydney Brilz, lead, and Dallyce Gillespie, third, from the West Shore while Marika Van Osch, skip, and Brooke Capron, second, hail from Nanaimo.

A first place finish at provincials would mean they move on to the U18 Optimist National Championships as Team BC, March 27 to 31. The championships are held in Surrey and Langley.

 

 

Team Silversides

Three of the four players, minus Van Osch, played in the junior provincials, with skip Katherine Silversides and finished seventh out of eight teams. The competition was held in Coquitlam.

 

The junior provincial competition is for players 17 to 21 and the juvenile games are for players 12 to 16 years old.
