Tardi takes mixed doubles title

Langley Curling Club's Tyler Tardi teams up with Dezaray Hawes of Royal City Curling Club and will now represent B.C. at nationals

Tyler Tardi teamed with Dezaray Hawes of the Royal City Curling Club to win the mixed doubles provincial championship over the weekend at the Peace Arch Curling Club.

Tardi, a Cloverdale resident and a member of the Langley Curling Club, will now compete with Hawes at the mixed doubles curling trials March 11 to 15 in Ottawa.

If successful at that event, the pair would qualify for the world championships in Sochi, Russia.

Tardi/Hawes defeated the duo of Daniel Wenzek and Sarah Daniels  7-6 in Sunday’s final. The champions went 2-1 (won-lost) in round robin play to place fourth among the 13 teams, then won three consecutive playoff contests.

But before they head to Ottawa, both Tardi and Hawes will represent B.C. at the upcoming Canada Winter Games in Prince George. The competition runs Feb. 13 to March 1.
