Skip Hannah Fleming said after the event: “It’s been a positive weekend in Red Deer. A lot of things we have been working on have clicked together well and have shown in our results.
“We had a really close semi final against Fujisawa going to an extra end and it was disappointing not to reach the final, but overall happy with our team’s performance,” she added.
