NEW DOMINION, P.E.I. (by Jason Malloy)—
New Dominion’s Lauren Lenentine and her teammates are staying together.
New Dominion’s Lauren Lenentine won her second world junior curling gold medal on Feb. 22 in Russia. Submitted
The world junior championship-winning squad of skip Mackenzie Zacharias, third Karlee Burgess, second Emily Zacharias and lead Lenentine will all move up to women’s competition next season. Lenentine and Emily Zacharias both had junior eligibility left.
“We knew that we had a really good season and we just kind of wanted to see what else we could do, so we made the decision to all move up,” Lenentine said Sunday. “We both thought it would be best if we just continued with our team because we did have really good chemistry and I think that we can keep pushing ourselves.”
“We’re definitely in the toughest curling province, so we are going to be in tough for a little while, but just being able to play those teams regularly, I think that’s going to be really beneficial because we can learn from that,” said Lenentine.
