Team Plett has made Canada proud after claiming fourth place at the 2024 Women's World Junior Curling Championships in Lohja, Finland.

They made it to the playoffs with a 5-4 record, unfortunately losing the semi-final to team Switzerland and then the bronze medal match to Norway. Claiming fourth does secure the next Team Canada a spot at next year's championship.

"We had a pretty good week beating some really strong teams from around the world. Honestly, we didn't know what our chances would be making playoffs, but being top four in the world is just a huge accomplishment for our whole team," stated Plett.

Team Plett has two members from the Airdrie area - Myla Plett from Carstairs and Head Coach Blair Lenton from Airdrie. Third, Alyssa Nedohin is from Sherwood Park, throwing second stones is Chloe Fediuk from Edmonton and Allie Iskiw, the lead of the team, is from Ellerslie. They recently added a fifth player to the team to be a spare, Kaylee Raniseth who won the sportsmanship award.

This is the second time they have represented Canada this curling season. They recently placed second at the World Junior-B Curling Championships which helped them qualify for the 2024 World Junior Curling Championships.

When asked what was one of her favourite parts on or off the ice during the championship, Plett mentioned exploring Finland and the banquet at the end.

"We had a banquet after the championship and all those teams are completely different off the ice as they are on; so it was just a great experience."

With the World Junior Championship in the rearview mirror, Team Plett starts the quest to regain their title of Team Canada by competing in provincials which starts next week in Drayton Valley.

"Not a lot of time to prepare, but I think that the girls will be ready and then we hopefully have nationals two weeks after that."

If they were to repeat as provincial and national champions, they would get to represent Canada once again at the Women's World Junior Curling Championships.

Recently, Team Plett was also named coach for the U-15 Rockfest West event.
