Dauphin's Hale-Menard Enjoying Canadian Mixed Curling Championships!
Dauphin's Lisa Hale-Menard was on the spare list for the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships, and because of a team injury, she was inserted into the Manitoba lineup.
"It's been a great experience so far," said Hale-Menard. "Team Dunstone has been wonderful to play for. It's been a little tricky because I'm playing third and I've never played with the skip, so that makes it a little tough, but everyone is starting to get to know each other a little better."
The team is currently 1-2 after losing this morning against the Northwest Territories.
"It was a heartbreaking loss this morning," said Hale-Menard. "We had a critical shot in the seventh that picked, and that took the end away from us."
The team now takes on Saskatchewan this afternoon at 2:30.
"We just have to find a way to rebound after that tough loss," said Hale-Menard. "Saskatchewan is struggling out of the gate, so it should be interesting."
