“This one feels a little different because of my age. I don’t have many left,” Anderson said.

The trio won the junior provincials in 2016 and Korchinski said this championship is special.

“It feels really good, different in a way that it’s women’s,” Korchinski said.

“Like I’m 22, I’m going to the Scotties. That’s pretty special.”

The 2018 Scotties Tournament of Hearts starts on Jan. 27 in Penticton, B.C.
