Carey tops Scotties seeds

With six-time champion Jennifer Jones out of the picture while she prepares for the Olympics, Winnipeg’s Chelsea Carey of the Fort Rouge club has been seeded first for the Scotties Tournament of Hearts provincial women’s curling championship, beginning Wednesday in Virden.

No Westman teams were seeded in the top five, with Carey, a two-time provincial finalist who made it to a tiebreaker at the Olympic trials won by Jones last month, being followed by three-time champion Barb Spencer of the Assiniboine Memorial club.

Another three-time winner, Spencer’s sister Darcy Robertson of Fort Rouge, is seeded fourth, while Michelle Montford of Assiniboine Memorial has been seeded third and two-time Manitoba mixed champion Kerri Einarson of East St. Paul is fifth.

The 16-team field also includes Brandon teams skipped by Kortney Teale and Kelsey Russill as well as Lisa Menard of Dauphin.

The five-day championship will be held at Tundra Oil and Gas Place, with the final to be played on Sunday, Jan. 12.

The winner qualifies for the Scotties national championship, Feb. 1-9 in Montreal.
