Hard work has paid off for Katie Cottrill and Shawn Cottrill of the Wingham Golf & Curling Club as, for the first time, they are Ontario Mixed Doubles Champions.
The Cottrill/Cottrill pairing showed little weakness outscoring their opposition 40-23 and averaging 8.6 points per game during their undefeated run to the championship. Having qualified from the A side, the Cottrill/Cottrill rink earned a direct bye to the semi finals where they defeated Konings/Wasylkiw 8-1 followed up by a strong showing in the finals defeating the Ryan/Sutherland rink 9-1.
The Cottrills are no strangers to the mixed doubles discipline. They’re regulars amid the top 20 mixed doubles CTRS points rankings (14th overall as of February 25th) and were among the field at the 2018 Canadian Mixed Doubles Championships last season.
They’ll be back at the National Championships once again in Fredericton, NB March 19th-24th 2019 but this time sporting Ontario jackets.
Congratulations and best of luck at the National Championships!
