Naomi Britz will travel to Kamloops next month to curl for Ashley Mallett's rink.

Chilliwack’s Naomi Britz will curl in Kamloops next month at the B.C. Winter Games.

Britz curled second for Ashley Mallett’s U-16 girls’ rink, which emerged victorious from a Zone 3 playdown last weekend at the Coquitlam Curling Club.

Her team faced Brooklyn Aleksic’s Golden Ears rink in three matches, winning two to move on.

After splitting a pair of draws on Saturday by scores of 11-5 (for Mallett) and 10-2 (for Aleksic), the teams met in a do-or-die showdown Sunday.

Mallett, Britz and teammates Kaelen Coles-Lyster (third), Mackenzie Duffill (lead) and Jensen Recksiedler (fifth) scored three in the opening end and four in the fourth, cruising to a decisive 8-2 win.

Eight girls’ teams will curl in the B.C. Winter Games, which run Feb. 22-25.

More than 2,000 athletes, coaches and officials from all over British Columbia will compete in 19 sports.
