The Syngenta 2020 PEI Under 18 Curling Championships at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton, with three boy’s teams and an equal number of girl’s rinks taking part, concluded on Sunday afternoon with the Brayden Snow team from the Charlottetown Curling Club beating the two-time defending champion Mitchell Schut rink from Cornwall 5-3 to take the boy’s title, and Cornwall’s Katie Shaw team, three members of which were on last year’s championship rink, beating their clubmates the Rachel MacLean foursome, also by a 5-3 score, to take the girl’s. Both Snow and Shaw had won their respective “B” and “C” divisions in modified triple knockout play, with Schut and MacLean winning the “A”. As they had won two divisions, a win in either of two championship round games would have given Snow and Shaw the titles, but the evening draw was not necessary as both won their first games.
The Katie Shaw winning girl’s rink also includes third Alexis Burris, second Lexie Murray and lead Meghan Sherren, with coach David Murphy.
The David MacFadyen-coached Brayden Snow boy’s championship team includes third stone Jack MacFadyen, second Liam Barbrick, and lead Davis Nicholson.
Rounding out the girl’s finalist Rachel MacLean foursome are third Lauren Ferguson, second Avery Nicholson, and lead Izzy Tatlock, with coach Pat Quilty.
Completing the boy’s finalist team skipped by Mitchell Schut are third Chase MacMillan, second Cruz Pineau, and lead Liam Kelly, with coach Brenda MacMillan.
The winning Snow and Shaw rinks now advance to the 2020 Canadian Under-18 Boys and Girls Curling Championships, Operated by Curling Canada, April 20-25, 2020 at the Countryside Arena in Sudbury, Ont.

Explanation for MA/WA and MB/WB:
1. One team wins all three qualifiers: Championship Round is not required.
2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both MA/WA and MB/WB (and win the event if they win either game), while the other winner plays in MA/WA (and has to win to advance to MB/WB).
3. If there are three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in MB/WB and the other winners play off in MA/WA If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to MB/WB and the other two teams play off in MA/MB.
*Qualifying games have game number/letter highlighted in yellow on the schedule.
