Both rinks now headed to nationals in Prince Albert, Sask.
The Lauren Ferguson and Tyler Smith rinks swept their way to the Pepsi provincial junior curling championships at the Charlottetown Curling Complex on Sunday morning.
Ferguson and Smith both won their respective C section finals to sweep all three sections to claim the titles while going undefeated. If a team won all three sections – A, B and C – they were declared champions, resulting in no championship round.
