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

Anderson is mentoring a young team that includes Karlee Korchinski (lead), Krista Fesser (second) and Kourtney Fesser (third).

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.
