Curl BC honours locals

Team Tardi members win year-end awards from provincial association

Team Tardi will be honoured with a pair of awards Saturday when Curl BC stages its banquet at the Best Western PLUS Coquitlam Inn.

Tyler Tardi will receive the Junior Male Athlete of the Year award, while father Paul Tardi has been announced as Coach of the Year. The Tardi family is from Cloverdale, and Team Tardi is a member of the Langley Curling Club.

Sarah Daniels of the Thistle Curling Club in North Delta will also be recognized. The 15 year-old is the Junior Female Athlete of the Year.

Tyler Tardi had a very successful 2013-14 season, which included a first at the BC Winter Games in Mission. Tardi received the W.R. Bennett Award for Athletic Excellence, the first time a curler had earned the honour. He skipped his team to a bronze medal in Mission, and won silver medals at both the Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships and the 2014 BC High School Curling Championships. His team won the Canada Games qualifier, and will compete at the Canada Winter Games in Prince George next February.

With Team Tardi earning podium finishes at each major event this past season, coach Paul Tardi has earned the Anita Cochrane Award for Coach of the Year.

“Paul was nominated not just for his results but because of his great attitude toward knowledge.,” said a Curl BC press release. “He shares his knowledge, not just with players but also with other coaches in the curling community.”

Daniels is the Female Athlete of the year for the second consecutive season. Her junior team won a silver medal at the M&M Meat Shops Canadian Junior Curling Championship, and skipped her under-17 team to first place at a Canada Games qualifier in Vernon. She will be B.C.’s representative at the Canada Winter Games in Prince George.
