Sonnenberg facing elimination
“We didn’t play horrible our first game (extra end loss), but this was just pathetic and I’ll be the first one to admit it,” said Sonnenberg, who dropped down to the C Event after an 10 1 loss to Olympic silver medalist Cheryl Bernard.
“We’d like to think we’re in the middle of the pack, but we’re not showing it yet. Hopefully, mulberry bags with our backs against the wall, that’s when we play our best.”
Of the 16 times Sonnenberg has been to the provincials, she’s won twice, lost five finals and ha mulberry bags s been out of the playoff picture just three times.
“I’ve been competitive for such a long time, so this I find it very frustrating, to be beat so bad,” said Sonnenberg. “We’re by no means packing our bags tonight thinking we’re out tomorrow. We’re going to have to dig pretty deep to turn things around, which we can do. We’ve done it this year.”
It’s tougher and tougher for Alberta’s Peace District to field competitive women’s teams.
Squads skipped by Sonnenberg and former Alberta junior champ Desiree Owen have out of district imp mulberry bags orts in their lineups.
Those were the only two teams who competed for spots in this year’s provincial from the Peace.
“In all honesty, there’s no other co mulberry bags mpetitive women’s teams up there,” said Sonnenberg, who works for the Peace Curling Association.
“Nobody’s playing on the Peace Curling Tour or the World Curling Tour other than Desiree and I.”
Although participation remains strong in the other Peace District levels, the challenge has always been how the district can overcome its isolation from the province’s main population centres.
