After convincing wins in the quarter final and semi final rounds, the team advanced through to the gold medal playoff, facing the team of Chaelynn Kitz and Brayden Stewart of Canada, narrowly going down six points to four.
"We had a great event here in Saskatoon, Canada", Hewitt commented after the event.
"There were a number of great teams including some going to the World Championships with us in April."
"It was promising to see that we could put together all that we built on from our training camps and different coaches we’ve been working with over the past seven weeks."
"We had three good events leading up to this one but we were always one win or just centimeters away from making the playoffs.
"Reaching the final in our last event here gives us more motivation for when we head to Europe in March. We’re feeling great out there on the ice and can’t wait until Scotland."
"We head home now for a little rest and build up our gym work for the next month."
The next event on the schedule for Hewitt and Gill is the International Mixed Doubles competition in Dumfries, Scotland, during March 19-22.
