SUMMERSIDE – The Donald DeWolfe team will represent P.E.I. at the 2017 national under-18 curling championships from April 18 to 22.
The inaugural under-18 event, which will be held in Moncton, N.B., will feature 12 of the top youth teams from across Canada as they represent their home province or territory. Games will be played at the Superior Propane Centre and Curl Moncton.
The DeWolfe rink earned the right to represent P.E.I. by pulling out a 4-3 win over the Mitchell Schut rink in the provincial under-18 final in February.
Other members of the DeWolfe-skipped Team P.E.I. are lead Nick Johnston, second stone Alex Gallant and third stone Jacob Wilkins. The rink, coached by Roger Gavin, covers the Island with members from the Cornwall Curling Club, Silver Fox in Summerside and the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton.
As a fundraiser the DeWolfe rink is selling tickets on the chance to win two event passes, which have been donated by the City of Summerside, to the Road to the Roar pre-Olympic Curling Trials event that will be held at Credit Union Place in Summerside in November.
