PEI Curler Alison Griffin to compete in national Scotties again this year

While the PEI Scotties Tournament of Hearts Provincial Women’s Curling Championship has not yet been held (it goes Jan. 29 to 31 in O’Leary), one Islander is already set to compete at the national Scotties, which takes place February 19 to 28 at the Markin McPhail Centre in Calgary Alberta.

O’Leary native and former Iqaluit resident Alison Griffin, who has moved back to PEI, is slated to curl for Team Nunavut again this year at the event, Nunavut did not hold a competition this year and is sending the same team as last year. This will be Griffin’s third time representing Nunavut at the Scotties.

Team Nunavut (L-R): Lori Eddy (skip), Sadie Pinksen (third), Alison Griffin (2nd), Kaitlin MacDonald (lead) Coach Donalda Mattie (not in picture)

PEI’s representatives will be either the Suzanne Birt rink or the Darlene London team, both from the Montague Curling Club. Team Birt represented the Island last year.
