Ottawa’s Lisa Weagle earned a big payday to open her season at the Aug. 25-27 Everest Curling Challenge in Fredericton, N.B., scoring the sport’s richest prize at the winner-take-all $200,000 event where captains drafted a mixed-gender lineup of Canada’s top curlers.
The regular lead for the Team Homan Ottawa Curling Club rink played alongside E.J. Harnden, Cathy Overton and skip Brad Gushue and won the final 6-5 over Team Epping.
