Liverpool native Jill Brothers skipped her team to a win this past weekend, earning her rink a $3,000 cheque and 21.757 world ranking points.
Brothers’ Halifax-based team won the Oct. 26-29 Dave Jones Mayflower Cashspiel, defeating Theresa Breen’s squad 7-4 in the finals. Team Brothers is currently ranked 24th according to the Canadian Team Ranking System, the point system used by Curling Canada.
Brothers (formerly Mouzar) captured the 2001 Nova Scotia junior women’s championship on a Liverpool team that featured Meaghan Smart, Meghan MacAdams, Carolyn Marshall and coach Albert Smart. She later won the national junior women’s championship in 2004 with a different rink.
Brothers has skipped her way to the Nova Scotia women’s championship twice, first in 2007 and then in 2016. She finished second in the 2017 provincial finals in January.
