It’s a classic case of East meets West. Crystal Webster’s current team formed in 2011, when Erin Carmody (vice) and Geri-Lynn Ramsay (second) moved out west from their PEI homes to join forces with Crystal and lead Sam Preston. At last year’s Alberta Scotties’ playdowns, the team made it to the final game before losing to Heather Nedohin, who would ultimately move on to win the national Scotties crown.
The team has had a solid start to the year, and now sits in 9th place in the CTRS Standings. They will begin their run for the Alberta provincial title on January 23, at the Lethbridge Curling Club. We wish the entire team the best of luck during the playdowns.
Goldline had the chance to speak with the team earlier this year. Here’s our interview with Geri-Lynn Ramsay.
