Emma Jensen and her curling team are Golden!
Jensen, third- Jaycee Terrick, second- Kaitlyn Szewczyk, and lead- Gracey Gulak beat Winnipeg Gold in the final at the Manitoba Winter Games, 5-4.
"I don't think its sunk in yet," said Jensen. "Right at the end of the game my teammates were crying, and my coach and dad. It's just crazy right now."
The win for the team was a comeback victory as they trailed, 2-0 early in the game but turned the tides of the game with a steal of two in the sixth end.
Now the foursome will prepare for the U-18 National Championship in St. Andrews, New Brunswick.
"It means everything to us to head to the Nationals," said Jensen. "We've been working on this all year. Our hard work paid off, and we're just so happy."
Today's gold is the second medal for Jensen in 2018 after picking up a silver at the MHSAA Curling Provincials a couple of weeks ago.
