Despite not making it to the playoffs for the 2019 Senior Boys Provincial curling championship, Humboldt's senior boys curling team was happy with how the weekend went at the Humboldt Curling Rink.
The team went 2-1 in the round robin with a tiebreaker matchup against Weyburn eliminating them from the tournament. Weyburn was the one team they couldn't defeat in the round robin.
"They're really nice guys, they played an excellent game, they made every shot and when there was a miss we tried to take advantage of what could. I've played against them more than once and all the win's they've had, they deserve," said Braden Fleischhacker, Skip of the Humboldt senior boy's team.
Even after getting eliminated from the tournament, Fleischhacker stated it was a great experience to host the provincial championship and sends his thanks to the community for putting on a great show.
"Our school, the coaches, and the curling club put a lot of work into hosting the event, It was awesome. I want to thank the community for the support we received, the fans were amazing."
Now with curling season at an end, the team will be forced to split. Three out of four players on the team are in grade 12 and are set to graduate this year.
"I'm really proud of these guys and they have really stepped it up over the past few years and have been making unbelievable shots."
With one player possibly returning, Humboldt Collegiate Institute will see a different team battle for a spot in provincials next year.
