Dauphin, Canada

It wasn't the turnout Dauphin's Carter Williamson was hoping for at the Manitoba Winter Games, but it will still go down as quite the memorable week for him.

The 15-year-old Dauphin native was the flag bearer for Team West at the Opening Ceremonies on Sunday.

"It was a great honour," said Williamson. "Just walking around and seeing all the fans and leading in Team West. It was such a great feeling, and I loved every second of it."

Williamson and his team based out of Brandon ended placing sixth at the games.

"We didn't accomplish our goal, but we're still proud of ourselves," said Williamson. "The experience was amazing. Not many teams get to say they finished sixth in the province, so that gets me excited."

Williamson's curling season will be wrapping up very soon, and heading into next season he know's what he has to do.

"I just have to practice more," said Williamson. "I'll try doing twice as more, and get as many reps in as possible."

This was the first time Carter competed in the curling competition at the Manitoba Winter Games, and it's something he won't soon forget.

"It's been such an incredible week," said Williamson. "My favourite memory is playing with my team. We have such a great group of guys, and I was very lucky to get the chance to play with them."

The team lost their last game of the tournament this morning, 7-6.
