Curling Alumnae off to World Junior Championships

The team of Corryn Brown, Samatha Fisher, Erin Pincott and Sydney Fraser won the Canadian Junior Women's Curling title and are now heading to the World Junior Championships in Sochi, Russia.  The 17 year-olds from Kamloops are BC Games alumnae and were gold medalists at the BC Winter Games in both 2010 and 2012.  Just three weeks ago, the team attended an event in Kamloops announcing the city winning the rights to host the 2018 BC Winter Games.  Corynn spoke about how the BC Games were an important part of their development as athletes.

Article excerpt from the Victoria Times Colonist
FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. - Corryn Brown’s Kamloops team defeated Manitoba’s Shannon Birchard 6-3 on Sunday night to win the women's Canadian junior curling championships.

Brown’s team of 17-year-olds — third Erin Pincott, second Sam Fisher and lead Sydney Fraser — will represent Canada later this month at the world juniors in Sochi, Russia.

It was B.C.’s first gold medal at the tournament since 1987 when Julie Sutton won her second straight with a victory in Prince Albert, Sask.

“It feels incredible,” said Brown. “It hasn’t really sunk in too much right now. But it’s just unbelievable. Going to Russia is going to be incredible, and having the Maple Leaf on our back is going to be even better. I could not be more proud of these girls.”
