The Moose Jaw High School Curling League crowned its champions over the weekend at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

Skylar Ackerman has become accustomed to winning on the provincial and national stage with her competitive team, but she continues to rack up titles in the high school league.

Ackerman helped lead the Peacock mixed team to its fourth straight championship with a 9-3 win over Riverview in the final on Saturday morning.

"I've won every year so it's nice, it's pretty cool," said Ackerman, who skipped the team. "We're really good friends on and off the ice, so it's just a lot of fun for us. When we're having fun out there, we play better, so it's good."

Peacock beat Riverview, 10-5, in their opening game on Friday.

The Vanier girls team walked away with the city championship for the third straight year. They beat Central 12-3 in the second game of the final on Saturday.

Central had pulled out a hard-fought 8-7 win over Vanier in the first game of the final.

Skip Samantha McLaren said the team did a good job of resetting between games.

"We were told by a few people that in our first game that our smiles weren't there, so we came back with some smiles and we were just joking around like we usually do, which gave us a lot more confidence," said McLaren.

Vanier rolled in their first two games, beating Peacock 10-4 and Central 10-1 on Friday to advance into the final. The Cyclones struck back with the win in the first game of the final, but Vanier was able to top them one more time for the title.

"We were kind of nervous, but it was good to come back and win this one," said McLaren.

It was another repeat winner in the boys' league as well with Central capturing its second straight title thanks to a 12-3 win over Peacock in the final on Saturday.

"We played really good, [Friday] was a bit of a stretch, we were missing some important shots, but today we really stepped it up, our draws were good, our takeouts were good, it was just an overall good game," said Central skip David Gray.

Central rolled to a 7-3 win over Peacock in their first game of the city playdowns on Friday.

The District Championship will go on Friday and Saturday in Gravelbourg.
