For the second-straight year, Hannah Lindner has performed well on the B.C. curling stage.
Last year, she was a part of the winning U18 provincial team. This year, as a member of Team Daniels from Delta Thistle, Lindner won bronze at the 2020 B.C. Junior Curling Championships in Victoria.
Team Daniels went 5-1 in the round robin, finishing as the two-seed, and faced Team Taylor (who Lindner beat in the U18 finals a year ago) in the semifinal on January 1.
Lindner's team was down 6-2 after six ends, but staged a furious comeback, scoring two in the seventh, and getting consecutive one-point steals in the eighth and ninth ends. Unfortunately, the team's magic ran out in the 10th end, as Team Taylor won 7-6 to advance to the final.
Lindner, who played lead for Team Daniels, was a member of Kaila Buchy's team a year ago. Buchy is having another strong run this year as well, as Team Buchy finished as the one seed, and will play Team Taylor in the women's final Thursday at 2 p.m.
Lindner's appearance at the 2020 B.C. Junior Curling Championships keeps the streak of Fort St. John curlers appearing at the tournament alive.
Sterling Middleton played in — and won — the last three B.C. Junior Curling Championships on the men's side, but didn't play this year and has moved on to the men's ranks.
