Team Epping wins Oakville Tankard and Moves up to Fourth in World Rankings
[TORONTO]— Team Epping got off to a strong start to the 2019-2020 curling season capturing the Stu Sells Oakville Tankard in convincing fashion over the weekend.
Team Epping finished with an overall 7-1 record for the tournament, the first event for the new-look squad with Ryan Fry being added to the fold in the off season. With the win the team has moved up one spot to fourth in the world rankings and might receive additional berths into other big events at the end of the season because of it.
“It feels awesome,” Epping said with a smile. “I’ve always wanted to try and win one of Stu’s events because he’s been such a great supporter of our team over the past years. We’ve been close a couple of times but most importantly, it’s just a nice start to our season.”
The guys are back in action this week where they will look to defend their title at the AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic, September 10-15 in Cornwall, ON.
