Curler unbeaten on junior tour

Marika Van Osch, second of skip Sarah Daniels’s rink, helped her team win all four stops on the B.C. Junior Curling Tour.

A Nanaimo curler is off to a perfect start to the junior curling season.

Marika Van Osch, second of skip Sarah Daniels’s rink, helped her team win all four stops on the B.C. Junior Curling Tour, including the most recent event this past weekend in Esquimalt.

Points accumulated on the tour earned Daniels an automatic berth into the B.C. Junior Curling Championships at the end of the year in Kamloops.

“The [tour] enjoyed an extremely successful first year. What a fantastic opportunity for all B.C. junior and juvenile aged teams to compete with the province’s best…” said Melissa Soligo, Curl B.C. provincial coach, in a press release. “The more opportunities that can be provided to these young athletes, the better and the brighter the future of curling in B.C. looks.”
