Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Brandon natives picked

Mike McEwen’s and Nolan Thiessen’s teams have qualified for the Canadian Curling Association’s national team program.

McEwen skips a team out of Winnipeg, while Thiessen, also a former Brandonite, plays lead for John Morris’s Calgary-based squad. Brad Jacobs and Glenn Howard of Ontario as well as Kevin Koe’s Alberta team and Brad Gushue’s foursome from Newfoundland are also in the men’s program, which is based on their standings in the Order of Merit after the 2013-14 season.

Six women’s teams also are in the program, including Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones, who has former Brandonite Jill Officer at second, as well as Saskatchewan’s Stefanie Lawton, Ontario’s Rachel Homan and Sherry Middaugh, and Alberta’s Val Sweeting and Heather Nedohin.

The teams will have funding to cover some of the costs of competition and training as well as being able to access high-performance resources like sports science, medicine and coaching from inside or outside the Canadian Curling Association.
