Curlers Enjoying All Yarmouth Has To Offer

The games are getting bigger at the Canadian Senior Curling Championships in Yarmouth.

It’s the last day of championship pool play, and Nova Scotia’s men’s and women’s teams are in action.

Theresa Breen of the Halifax Curling Club says it means a lot to play this tournament in her home province.

“It’s special to be able to play, and have all the fans cheering for us. This is a special place to play, and everyone has been so welcoming. This is my second Canadian Senior Championship, we won bronze last year, and have an experienced team.”

The women’s team takes on Newfoundland and Labrador this morning and Saskatchewan tonight.

Breen says the ice has been fantastic.

“Here at the Mariners Centre and at the Yarmouth Curling Club, you can’t get any better, and that’s important for every curler to have good ice. We’ve been enjoying our experience.”

Anderson Chasing History

Saskatchewan’s women’s team is going for their record fifth straight tournament win.

Sherry Anderson, who made ten Scotties Tournament of Hearts appearances for Saskatchewan, says Yarmouth has been a great host.

“And it doesn’t hurt that I love seafood and scallops. We’ve been treated marvelously here,” says Anderson.

She says this tournament has stuck out, along with her first seniors tournament in Digby back in 2016.

“That was so much fun, we all said we have to get back to the East Coast and do this again. We’ve been treated so well with the small town atmosphere.”

When it comes to the pressure of trying to win five straight, Anderson is ready.

“I like to be my best all the time. I won’t put a lot of pressure on myself, but it would be a great experience to win.”

Nova Scotia’s men’s team will play Alberta in the morning draw today, and Manitoba tonight.

The semifinal games go tomorrow morning, with the championships to follow.

The winners will head to Worlds this spring in South Korea.
