December 3, 2019 Meeting

What did we get up to last week?

December 3, 2019 flag ceremony

Rachel Homan skipped her Ottawa-based team of Emma Miskew (third), Joanne Courtney (second), and Lisa Weagle (lead) to the gold medal at the 2017 World Women’s Curling Championship. It was Canada’s first world title in women’s curling since 2008, ending the country’s longest ever drought. They also became the first team in the 39-year history of the women’s world championships to post an undefeated record, going a perfect 13-0. That was Homan’s third appearance at the world championships, having previously won bronze in 2013 and silver in 2014.

Curling has been a part of Homan’s life for more than two decades. Her great-grandfather and grandfather both curled on air force bases around the world while serving as pilot and navigator with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Her parents and older brother were also curlers. As a 17-year-old she won gold at the 2007 Canada Winter Games. Three years later she was a silver medallist at the 2010 World Junior Curling Championships. That came after her team became the first to win the junior national title with a perfect 13-0 record.

Homan was a bronze medallist at the 2013 Roar of the Rings that determined the Canadian curling teams for Sochi 2014. Homan and Miskew have been curling together since they were 11 years old. Weagle joined the team in 2010-11 with Courtney following in 2014-15. In 2017, Homan teamed with John Morris at the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship, finishing second to Courtney and Reid Carruthers.

A little more about Rachel:

Getting into the Sport: Started curling at age 5 and competing at age 12… Outside Interests: Pursuing a degree in Education at the University of Alberta… Earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of Ottawa… Odds and Ends: Youngest skip of either gender to win three national title.
