Lethbridge team preps for 2023 Scotties

The sport of curling has continued to grow in popularity, including right here in Lethbridge. From February 17-26, the Scotties Tournament of Hearts is set to host the best women curlers in Canada in Kamloops, BC. Kirk Mearns, the general manager of the Lethbridge Curling Club, says he has his eyes on Team Wild Card 2 who curl and train in Lethbridge.

“We, of course, with Team Scheidegger, we’re a big fan of them coming out of our club. And they’re going to be- they’re the 2 Wild Card team, and they’ll be a force. There’s always the big teams, you know, you go through Team Canada, which is Team Einarson, Homan out of Ontario is always strong and getting stronger. Kaitlin Lawes team out of Manitoba again as Wildcard One. And Jennifer Jones. So when you look at that, it’s hard to go deeper than that. I don’t think you’re going to look much past Einarson and Homan to win the Scotties.”

The Kerri Einarson foursome have won the Scotties Tournament of Hearts three years in a row and are looking to four-peat this year.
