Delisle's Sherry Anderson and her crew are coming off another senior women's provincial title, their fourth in a row to be exact.

The ladies scored themselves the championship last Sunday in Rosetown after a thrilling 7-6 victory over Team Syrota to claim the right to represent the province at the national tournament later this month.

Against seven other teams in the event, Team Anderson went 5-2 in round robin play to finish third in the table, sneaking their way into the playoffs where they met Team Inglis in the semifinal. There, the Nutana Curling Club rink punched in a 5-3 victory over Inglis to book a rematch with Team Syrota, one of the teams to defeat Anderson in the round robin.

In the final, Delores Syrota was able to guide her team to a 6-4 lead going into the 8th end. That's where Anderson, along with teammates Anita Silvernagle from Biggar, Patty Hersikorn and Brenda Goertzen from Saskatoon, were able to show their magic.

Anderson was able to pull off a three-score comeback to take their fourth straight championship, which will have the group return as Saskatchewan's representatives at the Canadian Senior Curling Championships March 22-28 in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

"It's nice to win somewhere close where family and friends can come and take part in it," said a reflective Anderson as she looked back on the experience her and her teammates had in Rosetown last week. "We had quite a few spectators there, we didn't have to travel very far. There were lots of pluses to being there."

Now the win does get them into the national championship on the west coast, but next month, the team will be heading across the Atlantic Ocean to play in the international tournament.

Since Team Anderson won the World Senior Women's Championship last year in Sweden as Team Canada, they have earned the right to defend their trophy at the 2019 event from April 20-27 in Stavanger, Norway.

For Team Anderson, the national tournament will not only give them a chance to repeat as champions, but will get them some much needed time to ready themselves against the world's best in April.

"We like the warmup to the World's because it gives us something to play for at the Canadian Championship in March before we head to Norway in April," she said. "Not too many people get the opportunity as I've learned over the last few decades. You want to go there and be at your very best, and hopefully bring home the gold."

Anderson, Silvernagle, Goertzen and Hersikorn will be getting in some practice time and relaxation ahead of their busy schedule these next couple months. Sherry chuckled as she added that they'll be making sure to speak nicely to their bosses so they can get the time off to go.

But it's the same formula for the local curlers. As Anderson puts it, it doesn't matter if the competition is overseas or locally, they'll make sure they're at their best and ready to contend for their titles once again.
