TEAM BIO

Team Einarson had a breakout season in 2015-16 starting by winning the inaugural Tour Challenge Tier 2 to earn their first title together. The victory vaulted them into the Masters where they proved they belonged among the elite by reaching the semifinals, defeating Tour Challenge Tier 1 victors Team Tirinzoni during the quarters no less.

The crew continued their banner year through provincials capturing the Manitoba Scotties title for the first time following runner-up finishes in the previous two years. They finished fourth at the national Scotties Tournament of Hearts with second Liz Fyfe earning second-team all-star honours.

Einarson captured her first Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling major championship at the Boost National in 2016. Although they slipped outside of the top ranks, they captured the Tour Challenge Tier 2 title again in 2017 to receive another promotion.
