Ladies & Gentlemen please welcome on sheet “C” - our reigning Manitoba champions. The lead is Kristin MacCuish, the second is Liz Fyfe, the third is Selena Kaatz and the skip from the East St. Paul Curling Club is Kerri Einarson.


They worked so hard to win their first Provincial Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

But first they had to deal with heartbreak – like most teams do.

Kerri Einarson, Selena Kaatz, Liz Fyfe and Kristin MacCuish lost back-to-back finals in 2014 to Chelsea Carey and 2015 to Jennifer Jones.

The East St. Paul foursome put those two years of disappointment in the rear view mirror when they defeated Kristy McDonald 7-4 in the 2016 final at the Sun Gro Centre in Beausejour.

This week at the Eric Coy Arena in Winnipeg, Einarson has a chance to join Isabelle Ketchen, Joan Mogk, Connie Laliberte and Jennifer Jones as the only back-to-back Manitoba champions.

“Just getting into the arena and seeing the venue – it's beautiful,” said Einarson after Tuesday's practice session. “Definitely looking forward to getting started.”

Einarson, who is the second seed, will face Meghan Armit of West Kildonan and Lisa Menard of Dauphin on day one.

The defending champion knows her team has to bring their “A” game this week at Eric Coy.

“We definitely want to start off with our very first game playing well and then progress after every game. Everyone is throwing great and we'll just catch onto the ice if there's any issues here or there. We're ready.”
