Fowler, Robertson lead senior seeds

Defending provincial champion Lois Fowler will head into next week’s Manitoba Tim Hortons senior women’s curling championship as the top seed, while former Canadian champion Kelly Robertson heads into the Strathcona senior men’s event as the second.

Fowler’s Brandon-based squad has a new look to it this season as she has reconnected with Maureen Bonar to play third, Cathy Gauthier has come on at second and Allyson Stewart is at lead. They will also have home-ice advantage as the senior provincials will be held at the Brandon Curling Club, with the women’s event running from Feb. 20-23 and the men’s going from Feb. 20-24.

Deb Collyer’s Killarney team of Marilyn King, Donna Dowsett and Karen Dunbar will enter the provincial championship as the fourth seed, while Stonewall’s Laurie Deprez is the second seed, Winnipeg’s Karen Fallis is third and Manitou’s Lori Pelissier rounds out the top five in the 12-team field.

Brandon’s Joyce McDougall, Hamiota’s Sandra Cowling and Souris’s Lynne Locke will also represent Westman.

Meanwhile, Robertson’s Neepawa foursome of Doug Armour, Peter Prokopowich and Bob Scales won the 2011 Canadian title and a silver medal at the worlds the following year. They come into this year’s provincials as the second seed, with Bob Sigurdson’s Winnipeg team ranked first.

Winnipeg’s Scott Furevick, Mike Mahon and Barrie Sigurdson round out the top five teams.

The men’s field also includes Brandon’s Kelly McMechan and Lory Saban, Dauphin’s Jim Todoruk and Pilot Mound’s Curtis McCannell.
