Sterling Middleton and Team Tardi, began 2019 the same way they have every year since 2016 — by winning the B.C. Junior Men’s Curling Championship.

Team Tardi was up 6-0 after four ends in the final against Team Colwell, eventually winning 9-2.

With the win, the team is heading back to the Canadian Junior Curling Championships, Jan. 19 to 27 in Prince Alpert, in hopes of winning a national title.

“It means a lot. Every single one is special, it doesn’t matter if it’s your first or last, it’s always an honour to represent your province and we’re excited to go back again,” said Tyler Tardi, the team’s skip.

Middleton is the team’s third, and has been with the team the past three years. Last year’s team went on to win the Junior Men’s World Curling Championship as well, and hope to get a chance to win that title again as well.

But first, Team Tardi has to win the Canadian championships for a third straight year, something no team has done before.

“It’s obviously a thought that’s always lingering in the back of your mind, knowing it’s never been done before,” Tardi said of the possibility of winning a third Canadian Juniors.

“We actually have a lot of fun out there on the ice. They’re all great shooters,” said Tardi.
