Team Henderson beat Abbotsford’s Team Tanaka 9-8 in a thrilling final in Parksville on Jan. 3, the fourth-straight rink from the Victoria Curling Centre to win the B.C. junior men’s crown.

“It’s been my dream to win a B.C. title for longer than I can remember and it means the world to be able to represent B.C. at nationals … against some of the best young teams in Canada,” Paul said.

The rink will travel to Corner Brook, Nfld., for the 2015 M&M Meat Shops Canadian Junior Curling Championships from Jan. 24 to Feb. 1.

Tim Henderson is also on Team B.C. for the upcoming Canada Winter Games, Feb. 13 to March 1 in Prince George.
