Tardi rink tops field at B.C. junior curling championships

Team goes undefeated in capturing crown; next stop Canadian championships

Led by skip Tyler Tardi, the Tardi rink out of the Langley Curling Club and Royal City Curling Club, captured the B.C. junior provincial curling championship in Kamloops.

It is shaping up to be a busy start to 2016 for the Team Tardi curling rink.

The rink — which is made up of curlers from the Langley Curling Club and the Royal City Curling Club — took the title at the B.C. junior curling championships in Kamloops on Sunday.

The side is made up of skip Tyler Tardi, third Daniel Wenzek, second Jordan Tardi, lead Nicholas Meister, fifth Sterling Middleton and coach Paul Tardi.

They went into the finals undefeated and continued their run with an 8-3 victory over the Matthew McCrady rink by a score of 8-3 in the gold medal match.

The result qualifies the rink for the 2016 Canadian junior curling championships in Stratford, Ont. later this month. The winner of the championships will qualify for the world junior curling championships in Turkey.

The Tardi rink has also earned a spot at the B.C. men’s curling championships next month in Nelson.
