CONGRATS!!! to Jason Gunnlaugson, Adam Casey, Matt Wozniak, and Connor Njegovan who qualified this morning for the Canadian Curling Trials in Saskatoon. A last rock draw which needed full sweeping to out-count a pair of Tanner Horgan counters earned the Morris based team a Pre-Trials qualifying game victory and showed that Gunnlaugson is much more than ‘just a hitter’.
And kudos to Horgan and his team who went on to win the second Trials spot with a win over veteran Glenn Howard who eliminated Pat Simmons’ young Winnipeg Beach team of Colton & Tanner Lott and Kyle Doering, the team Horgan had skipped pre-Covid.
On the Women’s side, congrats as well to Krista McCarville’s team and Jacqueline Harrison’s team who were the Women’s Trials qualifiers.
