Ian Larocque and Kathy Ziglo are the winners of the 20th Mixed Team Championship.

Ziglo and Larocque combined for a 70 on day of the event Saturday, they shot a 68 on Sunday to win the event by six strokes over Brent Wotypka and and Kathy Hopfner (below) of Swift Current. They were tied with Ziglo and Larocque after day one but faltered during the second round shooting 74.

Prince Albert’s Cory and Kayla Sawchuk (below) won the bronze medal at the event firing a one-over, 145.

The field consisted of 58 golfers, or 29 teams. The format focused on a team game. Each player teed off and proceeded to play their partners’ ball to the green. Once the competitors reached the green they decided on which ball to hole out.
