Cole DeKoninck has been named a runner-up for MJHL Player of the Week

Dauphin's Makenna Hadway and her foursome are the Champions of the Johnston & Co. Parkland Junior Curling Tour that wrapped up yesterday at the Dauphin Curling Club.

Hadway, third Cassidy Dundas, second Zoey Terrick, lead Tessa Terrick, and coach Craig Terrick were in tough in their semi-final game yesterday. They took on the previously undefeated Carter Williamson rink. The Hadway rink played a flawless game of curling en route to an 8-1 win.

That set up a historic Championship final. For the first time in the tour's history, it was an all ladies final. It pitted Hadway's rink against Anya Jackson's foursome. 

The Hadway foursome played another solid game en route to a 7-3 win to claim the title. The team's climb to the top was full of upsets. Hadway and the foursome finished the round-robin in fourth place. That was lower than both of their opponents, but they came together in a big way down the stretch.

"It definitely felt pretty good to win the league," said Hadway. "I think everyone on the team was pretty surprised that we won the entire thing."

Winning both of their games yesterday was the back end of what was a great end to the season in general. The foursome also won their final game of the round-robin to build up some momentum heading into the playoffs.

"I finally figured out how to call a good game down the stretch," said Hadway. "I learned pointers throughout the entire league and it really helped. Also, our team just played really well. We were making the shots and our communication was top notch."

Next up for the team is the U21 Canola Growers Parkland Regionals this weekend. The Hadway rink and three other teams will be playing for three spots to the Provincial Championships from January 2-7.

"We definitely gained a lot of confidence heading into the weekend," said Hadway. "We just have to make our shots and if we miss, that's okay. We need to be confident in our abilities. I'm really happy with the way we're curling right now."

Mia Zamrykut is having quite the season in the pool. 

The 13-year-old is once again swimming with the Parkland Gators.

"The season has been going really good," said Zamrykut.

Mia joined the Gators for a swim meet this past weekend in Winnipeg. The event couldn't have gone any better for the young swimmer. She placed 1st in the 50M freestyle race. Mia finished the race in 28.94 seconds. That was a Western National time and it earned her a spot in the Western Canadian Championships in April in Edmonton.

"It felt so good because I've been working at it for a really long time," said Zamrykut. "I wasn't really expecting the times that I got. I didn't even think I was going to get under 29 seconds, so it felt amazing that I did."

Next up for Mia is the 2018 Manitoba/Saskatchewan "short course" Championships that are set for a couple weeks from now. The 13-year-old hopes she can use the momentum she built up this past weekend to have success in that event as well.

"I'm definitely hoping I can get a medal," she added. "I'm pretty confident that I can make it happen if I keep working really hard."

The Western Canadian Championships will be from April 11-14. 

"I'm just going to go out there and honestly give it my best," she added. "If I don't do as well, I won't blame myself because that event is a massive step. Especially for someone who's coming from a small town."

During her time with the Gators, winning has been great for the 13-year-old. But, winning isn't everything for her.

"I'm just really thankful that I've been able to make so many friends, especially this season," said Zamrykut. "I really love Dauphin and I love swimming with the Gators. I'm happy I didn't have to move to swim somewhere else. Life is great."
