Kayla Skrlik Interview

The curling community in the Peace Region continues to celebrate the success of the sisters from Nampa, Kayla and Ashton Skrlik winning the Alberta Scotties this past weekend in Wetaskiwin. The sisters had people who are not normally curling fans glued to the YouTube stream as the team would not only win but run the table finishing undefeated leaving some to wonder if this is the beginning of a Skrlik era for the women’s curling division of Alberta Curling.

I got to have a great conversation with Kayla, who is the skip for Team Skrlik, about the success she and her team had in Wetaskiwin. We discussed the ideas about the big last shot, Ashton’s broom throw as well as the team celebrations. Kayla also discussed the positive buzz they generated on social media and how she and the team plans to prepare for the task at hand of representing Alberta at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts next month at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops, BC.

 

The Scotties Tournament of Hearts will be taking place February 17-26 in Kamloops, BC with the winner representing Canada at the Women’s World Champions in Sandviken, Sweden March 18-26. The Scotties Tournament of Hearts will be broadcasted on TSN.
