Lorrand went through the entire round robin event UNDEFEATED with a total of 15 points earning himself a bye to one of the semi-final games which he won to proceed to the gold medal game against Logan Saunderson of BC. Unfortunately, Lo could not secure a full winning sweep as he lost in the final with a score of 18-16 to secure the SILVER medal.
A wonderful finish to an exceptional week for these two young athletes to secure at home in front of family and friends the well deserved GOLD and SILVER MEDALS.

Additionally, Jordan placed fourth in the Forster-Lang Pairs.

This event has a U18 lead paired with a U25 experienced skip.
We are extremely proud of how Jordan and Lorrand represented our sport, our province and for their well earned success at this championship. You along with our other competing athletes pave a special trail for upcoming youth in this great sport.
