Team Bio

Darcy Robertson skipped Manitoba to the Canadian junior women’s championship in 1984 with her sister, Barb Spencer, playing at third. The two continued to play side-by-side when they moved up the ranks and won their first women’s provincial championship in 1986. They represented Manitoba at the 1986 Scott Tournament of Hearts and just missed the playoffs with a 6-5 round-robin record.

Robertson also won the Manitoba provincial title in 2003 and 2009 playing third with Spencer skipping.

Vanessa Foster joined Team Spencer in 2009-10 and remained alongside Robertson when she returned to skipping in 2011. Karen Klein came on board at third in 2015-16 with Theresa Cannon signing on last season.

Team Robertson reached the 2017 Manitoba Scotties final after shocking Team Jones in the semifinals. Robertson stole two points in the opening end and never trailed during the 8-6 victory. They lost by an identical score to Team Englot in the final.

Robertson returned to the provincial final the following season and faced Jones for the championship. A late rally with a three-ender in the eighth and a single steal in the ninth gave Robertson a 6-5 lead but Jones scored two for the win in the final frame.
