Ac­cord­ing to coach Ja­son Reed, “Three mem­bers of our rink are new to curl­ing this year.” “They were up against dif­fi­cult com­pe­ti­tion, cer­tainly a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.” said Need­ham.

The SACA gold medals went to Medicine Hat, Team Zei­dell, sil­ver to Team Waite of Hunt­ing­ton Hills, Ca lgary and Bronze w e n t to Team Whit­more from Leth- bridge.

The cri­te­ria for Ban­tam play­ers is 14 years old or younger and many of the teams had curlers as young as eleven. It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence for all the teams.”

It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence
