Twelve teams have snapped up the remaining berths for the 2014 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships. And Jordan Koster (Comox/Victoria) is on one of the women’s teams.

Six men’s and six women’s teams will now join the four teams that have already qualified for the provincial event, which takes place Dec. 26-31 at the Chilliwack Curling Club.

The finals will be televised on Sportsnet on Dec. 31.  (Visit http://www.curlbc.ca/communications/tv-schedules/ for the TV schedule).

The 12 successful teams battled through a challenging field at the Coastal Playdowns at Coquitlam Curling Centre last weekend.

Two teams representing the Juan De Fuca Curling Centre qualified in the C Event. One of the rinks was skipped by Mariah Coulombe (Victoria) with Katherine Silversides (third, Victoria), Bailey Tinkler (second, Victoria), Sydney Brilz (lead, Victoria) and Koster (fifth).
