The Backstory – from Kerry Lackie
The backstory for the past 10 years is wonderful to share, I feel very blessed.
2014: Kerry Lackie, Lisa McLean, Halyna Tepylo and Cynthia Roth represented Ontario and won the National Travelers Curling Club Championship in Halifax Nova Scotia. The final game was vs Tammie Cudmore from PEI. (two of the PEI players had previous Scotties appearances) Our team was officially from Westmount GCC, but all four were also active members of the KW Granite... and made sure everyone at the event knew it :)
2016: won the Onatrio Senior Womens' playing Third for Jo Ann Rizzo (Brantford GCC) with Kristin Turcotte & Julie McMullin - finished 4th at Nationals (Digby NS), losing the Bronze Medal game to Alberta's Cathy King
2017: defended our Ontario title, same team, winning the Silver Medal at Nationals (Fredericton NB), losing a close final to Saskatchewan's Sherry Anderson.
This year, Kerry, Kristin and Julie, together with new skip Susan Froud will proudly represent Ontario in Vernon BC... the Ontario banner will hang in the Alliston Curling Club, but we all proudly represent each of our home clubs: Alliston, KW Granite, Oshawa, London Highland. It is Susan's first trip to a National, and we are so excited to share that as a team. All four of us, along with our Coach Al Corbeil appreciate the support from our family, friends and fellow curlers as we prepare to compete.
