Ochre River's Emma Jensen represented the Dauphin Clippers at the MHSAA Curling Provincials this past weekend, and her and Makenna Hadway, Savanna Mansell, Jennifer Yaschyshyn, and Lane Prokopowich came home as Silver Medalists.
"It feels really awesome," said Jensen. "This is the first time a women's Clipper team has won a banner, so it was just really cool and special."
Heading into the Championships, Jensen said "We're hoping to win a few games, and we don't really know the competition out there. We'll get a feeling of the ice and hopefully, we can play our best the whole weekend."
Now Emma has her sights set on the Manitoba Winter Games that are set to start in just about a week in Thompson. She will be joined by Jaycee Terrick and Kaitlyn Szewczyk from McCreary, and Gilbert Plains Gracey Gulak as the ladies will compete in the U-18 women's event.
"I'm definitely feeling better about the Games now after High School Provincials," said Jensen. "I was pretty anxious about the Games in Thompson but now I'm definitely a lot calmer."
Jensen and her rink kick off their Games on March 4.
"We're just hoping to play our best out there," said Jensen. "If we do that, we should be able to get the outcome we want too."
All the action is at the Burntwood Curling Club.
