Team Epping Jumps to 6th in World Rankings After Victory

[TORONTO]—The updated world curling rankings were released this morning and Team Epping has jumped up to 6th in the world after a fantastic start to the season.

Highlighted by the big victory over the weekend at the Shorty Jenkins Classic in Cornwall, the squad also opened the season as a semi-finalist at the Stu Sells Oakville Tankard. Their overall record on the year is an impressive 12 wins and only one loss in tournament play.

The team has garnered quite a bit of attention all summer after they announced that 2018 Olympian Brent Laing and Craig Savill were reuniting as a front end duo and joining Epping and Mat Camm.

“It feels great to get off to strong start as a new team,” said Epping, who now has 19 wins on the World Curling Tour. “We still have a long way to go but the early chemistry has been outstanding and we can’t wait to get back on the ice together.”

Sportsnet’s Jonathan Brazeau penned a full piece on the weekend victory here –

Team Epping will play next in the first Grand Slam of Curling Elite 10 event in Chatham, ON on September 25th-30th which will be nationally televised on Sportsnet. They will open the event on Wednesday, September 26th at 7:00 PM ET.
