Brianna Cullen is a two-time provincial high school curling champion.
Cullen, along with third Julia Millan, second Morgan Maguet, lead Maddy Schirle and fifth Bethany Wielgosh of Ecole Edward Schreyer School in Beausejour went undefeated in winning the championship banner at the Provincial High School Curling Championship last month in Swan Lake and Somerset.
"We were able to pick up on the ice pretty quickly and figure out draw weight," said Cullen who reeled off seven straight wins at the provincials. "That really helped us capitalize early on in the ends and then we just never really gave up. There was a couple of games we were down at the halfway point so we had to rally back and it end up working out for us."
The Barons foursome defeated Natalie Gundrum of Prairie Mountain 6-4 in the A side final and Cullen said that win was big.
"It was a huge relief. It did take a little bit of the stress and nerves off because now we had a second chance. We knew we couldn't let our feet off the gas pedal."
And they didn't.
Cullen, Millan, Maguet and Schirle defeated Katy Lukowich of Miles Macdonell 5-4 in the B side semifinals and then beat Gundrum 9-6 in the B final to claim the provincial title.
"It was awesome," said Cullen who won her first provincial curling championship playing third for her sister Kathryn two years ago in Dauphin. "We all had a big group hug and we were all crazy excited. It's unreal."
"It was nice to win with my sister but it was also super cool to win it with me being the skip and the leader of the team," added Cullen. "They're awesome in their own ways."
Millan is also a two-time provincial champion as she played lead on that 2017 Barons team.
Brianna Cullen said they put in a lot of time and effort and it paid off as they brought the provincial championship banner back to Beausejour.
"We had to work super hard for it. We had lots of practices to get ready for it. To be able to win it with those girls - they're awesome. They're some of my good friends. It doesn't get much better than that."
