Young curlers looking for ­support heading to nationals

By Matthew McCully

Putting your heart and soul into a game that you love and reaching the highest level possible in your category is something to be proud of. “This was the goal the entire year,” explained James Trahan, a member of Team Cheal, heading to Langly, BC in just a few days to represent Quebec at the Canadian Junior Curling Championships. There’s a catch, though. “I’m going to miss some classes,” he explained. Yes, making it to the nationals is welcome news, but the logistics involved, considering the distance, is another story.
Following the recent win in Rivière-du-Loup last Wednesday, the members of Team Cheal immediately had to prepare themselves for an eight or nine day trip on the other side of the country with around a week’s notice. See full story in the Monday, Jan. 13 edition of The Record.
