Silver Fox to host 2012 17 and Under

The six-sheet Silver Fox Curling & Yacht Club in Summerside will be the host for the 2012 Provincial age 17 and Under curling championships from February 17-20, with the winning rinks advancing to the Atlantic Under 18 Curling Championships, April 6-8 at the Bluenose Curling Club in New Glasgow NS. For men's and six women's teams have signed for this year's event, with the 17 & Under men playing a double round robin with the top two teams advancing to a sudden death final, and the women playing a single round robin with the top two teams advancing to a best two out of three final. If one men's team goes through the double round robin undefeated, they will be declared the champions without playing the championship game.

Last year's proviincial and Atlantic men's champions, the Alex Matters rink from Charlottetown are this year's Pepsi Junior (age 20 & Under) Men's champions, and cannot compete as a team in this year's event. Last year's winning 17 and Under women's rink, the Amanda MacLean foursome from the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O'Leary, were runners-up in this year's Pepsi Juniors. Aleya Quilty from that team is on the Jenny McLean rink this year out of the Silver Fox, while Youth Olympics bronze medallist Emily Gray is not participating in this event, and MacLean and third Kassinda Butler are out of the age category.
