A team of curlers from Elgin Park Secondary will represent the region at provincials, after taking first place in the Lower Fraser Valley Curling Championships last weekend.

The team, skipped by Sarah Loken, will head to the BC Championships in March in Delta. Other team members include Carly Green, Kallie Deptuck, Sukhman Kandola and Natasha Sharma.

Loken’s win marks the third time she has qualified for provincials this season; she is also skip of a junior-level team that earned a bronze medal at provincials in Kamloops earlier this month, and in February, she will compete on a juvenile team at the BC Games in Penticton.

The boys squad from Elgin also competed at regionals last weekend, taking second place.
