From beautiful downtown Trail and the 2013 BC Senior Women’s Curling Championships an update on local skip Penny Shantz.

Shantz, from Parksville, won the B.C.’s last year to advance to the Canadians, and is back for another run at it with a brand new team.

Team Shantz is made up of Salmon Arm Curling Club members Sandra Jenkins at Third, Kate Horne at Second and Sherry Heath at Third.

According to CurlBC.com, Shantz and company opened the BC’s Tuesday morning with an 8-5 loss to the Lepine rink, and bounced back with a 10-6 win over Ridgway in the evening draw.

In Draw 3 Wednesday morning the Shantz rink was leading 3-0 after two ends but lost 8-7 to the Hiram rink.

Team Shantz was in tough that afternoon against the Jones-Walker rink ­— score from that game unavailable at press time.
