Team Sweeting is victorious in Scotties

Lacombians and guests were treated to five days of entertainment during the 2015 Jiffy Lube Scotties Tournament

TEAM EFFORT - Champions for the second year in a row

Lacombians and guests were treated to five days of entertainment during the 2015 Jiffy Lube Scotties Tournament of Hearts that took place last week. As the tournament progressed, more and more fans poured into the arena to watch the events leading up to the championship game on Sunday. A total of 12 teams took to the Lacombe Arena over the week to try and earn their place in the championship draw.

The defending champions of Team Sweeting took on Team Carey and were able to hold onto their Team Alberta status once more, with a final score of 9-7.

Val Sweeting said, “It’s been a really good competition and a really good week. I am just so proud of the girls for pulling through. We expected it to be close, and (Team Carey) made some really good shots to keep it close. They’re a good team, and we know that’s going to happen, so we just tried to keep control and have that shot for the win.”

She and her teammates said they were very excited, and are now looking forward to the national 2015 Scotties Tournament of Hearts that will take place in Moose Jaw next month.

“We were coming off a pretty good season as well and so we just knew that we’d have a bit of a target on our backs, but we tried not to focus on that. We just wanted to perform well and hoped that it would translate into winning, and it did. We just took it one shot at a time and stayed in it.”
