For the second year in a row, Clare Schimdt’s Winfield Curling Club foursome has booked a spot at the 2018 B.C. U18 Curling Championships.

Schmidt, third Abby Otteson, second Hanna Rempel and lead Jaiden Lloyd qualified for provincials thanks to their performance at the open playdowns on Saturday in Nelson.
