Renee Sonnenberg has played in a couple of Canadian women's curling championships, but now she's about to play on her biggest stage yet.

The Grande Prairie, Alta. skip and her rink of Lawnie McDonald, Cary-Anne McTaggart and Rona Pasika dismantled two-time Canadian champ Kelly Scott of Kelowna, B.C. 12-4 in the women's A-B game at the Canadian Olympic pre-trials at the Memorial Auditorium to advance to the trials Dec. 1-8 in Winnipeg.

"I love curling in Winnipeg. And to be on arena ice again in front of a big crowd, it's what every curler dreams of," Sonnenberg said. "Being able to go to Winnipeg is wonderful, but just to finally put together a great game and be able to enjoy the moment and be relaxed in a pressure situation is what I'm really proud of right now."
