After winning the B qualifier earlier in the month in Didsbury, the Robertson rink advanced and participated in the Southern Alberta playoffs in Coaldale.
The local rink, comprised of Jayla Robertson, Sydnie Molnar, Micayla Kooistra and Sheldynn Molnar, aged 13-15, took on the Korker rink from Lethbridge in the opener March 17 and lost 4-3.
Robertson’s crew needed a comeback to slide past the Kiist rink from the North Hill Curling Club from Calgary March 18.
The momentum didn’t transfer over to the evening, when they lost to another team from the North Hill Curling Club, Kobylnyk’s squad, 12-1.
“We were thrilled just to be a part of the play-downs. We didn’t go in with any big expectations, I’m glad we were able to compete and have a good time,” said team organizer Mike Molnar.
Robertson’s crew will be moving up into the juvenile division next year, as they look to continue the same success. His squad would like to thank the Strathmore and District Curling Club and Rob Damen for all their help this season.
