Pat Saunders and her curling team in 1987

Pat Sanders was a world champion in the sport of curling and she has been described as perhaps the greatest female shot maker in the world. She led her Racquet Club of Victoria rink to the 1987 B.C. championship where she defeated the 1985 women's world champion, Linda Moore of North Vancouver. Pat had previously made it is far as the B.C. women's championships in 1981, 1983 and 1984. She easily won the Canadian women's championship in Lethbridge in 1987 and went on to the world championship in Chicago where she blew away all the competition. Pat's team included third Georgina Hawkes, second Louise Herlinveaux, lead Deb Massullo and spare Elaine Jackson.
