D.C. rink finishes 11th at under-18 bonspiel

By Jon Zacks


Jordan Steinke’s Dawson Creek rink finished in 11th place at the Optimist International under-18 curling championship this weekend.

The Peace Region champs won their spot at the event in Regina by winning the Alberta Juvenile Championship, in early March.

Facing some of the best youth rinks from around North America and Japan, the Steinke rink finished the round robin at 1-4, but left on a high note, after a 7-3 win over the Northwest Territories in the 11th place game.

Nova Scotia claimed the overall men’s title, beating Saskatchewan in the gold medal final. The Yukon beat Nova Scotia in the women’s gold medal game.
