Team DeSchiffart takes seventh place at 2020 Alberta Winter Games

U15 team has two Ponoka players

A local U15 curling team took seventh place at the 2020 Alberta Winter Games, held in Airdrie Feb. 14 to 17.

Team DeSchiffart qualified at the Leduc Curling Club back in December for the games.

There were 16 U15 teams across Alberta that qualified for the Games, staying in the athletes’ village and travelling around with the multi sport event.

Playing some close curling games, the girls finished in seventh place. It was a fantastic experience with all the curlers.

Two players are from Ponoka, Morgan DeSchiffart, skip and Emma DeSchiffart, second. Madison Milot, lead, is from Bentley and Cadenz Matter, third, is from Beaumont.
